SINGAPORE (AP) - Israel's prime minister is congratulating President Donald Trump for a "historic" summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement Tuesday that the meeting was an important step toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
He also praised Trump's "tough" stance on Iran and its nuclear program, which he said was already affecting Iran's economy. He said: "President Trump's policies are an important tiding for Israel, the region and the entire world."
Netanyahu has been one of Trump's most vocal supporters on the global stage. He vehemently opposed the Iran nuclear deal signed between world powers and Iran, from which the U.S. withdrew last month.
