He objected to US President Joe Biden's remarks that he was "very concerned and Israel cannot continue on this path" over the judicial regulation that led to mass protests and strikes in Israel. In a series of posts on his Twitter account, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, while expressing that he "knew Biden for over 40 years and appreciated his commitment to Israel", reminded that his country is "a sovereign country".
Emphasizing that the "unshakable" alliance between Israel and the United States "always overcomes the disagreements that arise from time to time" between the two countries, Netanyahu said:
"My administration is determined to strengthen democracy by restoring the proper balance between the three powers of state, which we are trying to achieve by broad consensus.
"Israel is a sovereign country that makes its decisions based on the will of its people, not outside pressure, including its best friends."
US President Biden has expressed his concerns over the controversial judicial regulation that has sparked mass protests and strikes in Israel.
Answering the questions of journalists at the White House, Biden shared the view that Israel was going through a difficult process and that they had to deal with it, and said that he hoped Netanyahu would abandon the judicial regulation in question.
"They can't continue down this road. I kind of made that clear." Biden said he hoped Netanyahu would act in a way that would lead to real reconciliation.
When asked if Netanyahu would be invited to the White House, Biden replied, "No, not anytime soon."
