ABSTRACT

Israel: Background and U.S. Relations in Brief [May 17, 2017]   [open pdf - 895KB]

"For decades, strong bilateral relations have fueled and reinforced significant U.S.-Israel cooperation in many areas, including regional security. Nonetheless, at various points throughout the relationship, U.S. and Israeli policies have diverged on some important issues. Significant differences regarding regional issues--notably Iran and the Palestinians--arose or intensified during the Obama Administration. Since President Donald Trump's inauguration in January 2017, he and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu have discussed ways 'to advance and strengthen the U.S.-Israel special relationship, and security and stability in the Middle East.'"
