Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement applauding today’s announcement from President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiling a vision for peace for Israel and Palestine.

Congressman Byrne said: The framework offered today by President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu represents a significant step towards renewed peace negotiations in the region. President Trump deserves praise for his historic and steadfast support of Israel and his unyielding pursuit of increased stability throughout the entire Middle East.

“Any successful peace deal will require a path towards increased safety and prosperity for both the Israeli and Palestinian peoples, and I’m hopeful the vision offered today will bring the Palestinians to the table and move us closer to realizing our shared goal of peace.”

Byrne has visited Israel as recently as last year and has been a prominent voice in Congress supporting our only democratic ally in the region.
