US House speaker: Netanyahu speech to Congress not destructive to Israel relationship

US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Thursday strongly challenged the assertion that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress about nuclear negotiations with Iran would be destructive to US-Israeli relations.

"The president’s national security advisor says it’s destructive for the prime minister of Israel to address the United States Congress. I couldn’t disagree more," Boehner said at his weekly news conference.

"The American people and both parties in Congress have always stood with Israel and nothing, and no one, could get in the way," Boehner said.
