About our US/Israel News
Latest news on US-Israel international relations, including trade, summits, disputes, country cooperation, state visits and much more on US/Israel relations.
Relations between the US and Israel have been historically strong. The United States has been a consistent supporter of Israel since the 1960s, which it sees as essential to its Middle East policy. This support has come in various forms. Economically, Israel is a major recipient of US aid and, as of February 2022, was the largest recipient of US bilateral aid ($150bn) and receives an annual sum of $3.8bn in military assistance.
The United States has also levied its considerable political and diplomatic weight in Israel’s favour, pushing measures to enable good relations between Israel and its Arab neighbours (i.e. the 2020 Abraham Accords) and vetoing condemnation of Israel in the UN through its position as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.
