He then accompanied Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to tour Israel’s Holocaust Museum.
There he laid a wreath to honor the six million Jewish people killed by Nazis in World War II.
During his meeting with Israel’s president, Pence touted the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish nation.
Pence urged Palestine to return to the negotiating table to hammer out a peace deal with Israel.
On Monday, he announced that the U.S. embassy would officially move to Jerusalem by the end of next year.
