WASHINGTON:  US President Joe Biden said that he would send a request to the US Congress for more aid to Ukraine and Israel.

In his address to the nation, Biden said that if Washington stops its assistance to these countries, it will jeopardize the US security and its status of a "partner other nations want to work with."

"It’s just not worth it. That is why tomorrow I am going to send to the Congress an urgent budget request to fund America’s national security needs, to support our critical partners, including Israel and Ukraine," he said.

He described US aid to these countries as a "smart investment" that will "pay dividends for American security for generations."

In his opinion, the projected US aid would "sharpen Israel’s qualitative military edge."

"We’re going make sure Iron Dome continues to guard the skies over Israel. We’re going make sure other hostile actors in the region know that Israel’s stronger than ever and prevent this conflict from spreading," Biden continued.

He also made a call to the US Congress "to make sure we can continue to send Ukraine the weapons they need."

Earlier, Reuters reported that the Biden administration was planning to request $60 billion for Ukraine and $14 billion for Israel.

Biden also said that the United States is using arms supplies to the Kiev government as an opportunity to produce new weapons for the US armed forces.

"Let me be clear about something. We send to Ukraine equipment sitting in our stockpiles. And when we use the money allocated by Congress, we use it to replenish our own stores, our own stockpiles with new equipment, equipment that defends America and is made in America," the US leader said.
