U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today said President Barack Obama in an address today to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) 2012 policy conference laid out a good foundation for progress in the Middle East peace process and efforts by the U.S. and Israel to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
“Although I have strong policy disagreements with the president on many issues, I think he did a very good job today at the AIPAC conference in laying out a good foundation for a path forward in the Middle East peace process and halting the Iranian nuclear threat,” Corker said. “I agree with his strong commitment to our alliance with Israel, the right for Israel to defend itself, continuation of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, and our shared goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear capability. I thought he was clear and unambiguous, and I thank him for that.”
