[Excerpt from AP video of U.S. Special Envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell's meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu]
Special Envoy Mitchell [reading statement from U.S. President Barack Obama on the occasion of Israel's Independence Day celebrations]: Israel remains our important partner and key strategic ally in the Middle East and I am confident that our special relationship will only be strengthened in the months and years to come. I look forward to continuing our efforts with Israel to achieve comprehensive peace and security in the region, including a two-state solution and to working together to counter the forces that threaten Israel, the United States and the world.
