Mattis warns on Iran and commits to Israel's security

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Tel Aviv (dpa) - Visiting US Secretary of Defence James Mattis said on Friday the efforts to defeat the Islamic State extremist group were progressing well, while also issuing a warning on Iran.

"We also recognize the need to confront the destabilizing activities of Iran," Mattis said on his first trip to Israel in his current role, speaking alongside Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Mattis spoke of the "enduring bond between our countries‘ militaries" and the "absolute and unwavering commitment to Israel‘s security."

Local media, including Ynet, reported that Mattis told journalists in Tel Aviv he believes Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has more chemical weapons. Mattis warned al-Assad not use any such weapons, the reports said.

The US this month launched dozens of missiles at a Syrian airbase after accusing al-Assad‘s forces of using sarin in northern Syria.

The Israeli government is looking forward to better relations under President Donald Trump than under his predecessor Barack Obama.
