TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday he hoped a visit to Israel by U.S. President Donald Trump would be a "historic milestone" in achieving regional peace.
"May your first trip to our region prove to be a historic milestone on the path towards reconciliation and peace," Netanyahu said in a welcome speech to Trump.
He said Israel shared the United States' commitment to peace and that, "Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians."
