In a meeting with Ted Cruz, a Republican senator-elect from Texas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reemphasized the dangers that Syrian chemical weapons pose to the world.

“Israel and the United States are in close consultations about this issue and it highlights the dangers of these regimes receiving such weapons, and these weapons can even go from there to terrorist organizations,” he said. “This is a threat to Israel, a threat to America, a threat to others in this region and we’ll treat it accordingly.”

Cruz thanked Netanyahu and Israel “for its leadership for democratic values in a very dangerous region of the world, also for your leadership protecting the security of the nation and ultimately of the United States as well, with respect to weapons of mass destruction, whether in Syria or Iran or elsewhere, and I look forward to continuing to work together to strengthen that friendship.”
