Washington: The US has unshakable commitment
to Israeli security, the White House has said, adding that the
level of defence cooperation between the two would continue.

"We have an unshakable commitment to Israel`s security,"
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters, ahead
of the Monday`s meeting between US President Barack Obama and
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"It`s a commitment that`s demonstrated by the
unprecedented level of military-to-military and
intelligence-to-intelligence service cooperation that we`ve
established with Israel, a fact that has been testified to not
just by Obama administration officials but by Israeli
government officials, including the Prime Minister and the
Defence Minister," Carney said.

"That level of cooperation will continue. We are
absolutely committed to Israel`s security," he said in
response to a question that would US defend Israel if it is
attacked by Iran.
