Ne­tanyahu tells min­is­ters to stay quiet on US elec­tion

Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

JERUSALEM (AP): N IS­RAELI of­fi­cial said Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu has or­dered his Cabi­net min­is­ters to keep quiet about the Amer­i­can elec­tion.The of­fi­cial said Ne­tanyahu told his min­is­ters to re­frain from giv­ing any anal­y­sis or grant­ing in­ter­views about the choice be­tween Hil­lary Clin­ton and Don­ald Trump.

He spoke yes­ter­day on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause he was not au­tho­rised to dis­cuss the mat­ter on the record.

Ne­tanyahu has said Amer­i­can sup­port for Israel will re­main strong re­gard­less of who is elected, and that he ex­pects the next pres­i­dent to push for di­rect ne­go­ti­a­tions with the Pales­tini­ans rather than ex­ter­nal in­ter­ven­tion in the con­flict.

In 2012, Ne­tanyahu was ac­cused of sid­ing with Repub­li­can can­di­date Mitt Rom­ney. He has been care­ful this time to re­frain from ap­pear­ing to pre­fer one can­di­date over the other.
