The United States can support both Ukraine and Israel. The country has the means and obligations to do so, states American President Joe Biden.

"We have the capacity to do this and we have an obligation to, we are the essential nation," said Biden, paraphrasing a famous quote by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Biden noted that the United States is the most powerful nation in the history of the world.

When asked if the United States can wage both wars simultaneously, Biden stated that the country is indeed capable of providing support to both nations at the same time.

"We can take care of both of these and still maintain our overall international defense. And if we don't, who does?" the President emphasized.

American aid to Israel

Earlier, U.S. President Joe Biden ordered additional support to Israel following the terrorist attack by HAMAS. According to reports, the White House is working on fulfilling Israel's request for the urgent transfer of weapons.

The White House press office stated that, as a result of negotiations between Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, additional assistance to the Israel Defense Forces is currently being sent to Israel, and further aid will be provided in the coming days.

As of October 13, it was reported that a second plane with U.S. weaponry had arrived in the country. There were also reports about potential plans for the U.S. to deploy a Marine unit in the country.
