Washington (AP) - Shortly before the parliamentary elections in Israel, US President Donald Trump has phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The conversation was about a possible mutual defense agreement, said Trump on Twitter. Such an agreement would further cement the "fantastic alliance" between the US and Israel. He will continue the discussion with Netanyahu at a meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly later this month.
