Netanyahu: Israel to Resist UN Attempts to Dictate Terms of Peace With Palestine
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The meetings will be held separately and Netanyahu’s meeting with Trump was agreed upon first, a senior Israeli source told Haaretz on Friday.

On September 14, the United States signed a 10-year $38 billion security MOU with Israel that represents the largest single bilateral pledge of defense aid in US history. The agreement consists of $33 billion in foreign military financing and $5 billion in missile defense. The MOU is set to go into effect from fiscal year 2019 through 2028, replacing the previous MOU, which granted Israel $3.1 billion annually.

After the agreement had been signed, Netanyahu faced intense criticism from his political rivals, claiming that his political disagreements with US President Barack Obama had led to a dramatic cut in the amount of the US military aid.
