Trump: US, Israel negotiating mutual defence treaty

US President Donald Trump has confirmed on Twitter that he has spoken to his Israeli counterpart Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the prospects of signing a mutual defence treaty, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

Saying such a pact would "further anchor the tremendous alliance between our two countries," Trump said he looked "forward to continuing those discussions after the Israeli Elections," during a meeting at the upcoming session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Earlier, Israeli media reported that Washington and Tel Aviv were considering making a joint statement on their plans to enter into a joint defence pact ahead of the upcoming Israeli elections.
