JERUSALEM - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has arrived in Jerusalem.

He and some other New York state legislators are on a two-day visit to show solidarity with Israel during the conflict in Gaza.

On Wednesday, the delegation met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. The group had plans to eat pizza with some New York College students currently studying in Jerusalem.

Also on the packed itinerary, a stop at the Western Wall.

The Palestinian Ambassador to the United Nations offered the group a tour of territories Palestinians want to be their future state, but Cuomo's group declined that tour.

The trip is being financed by Cuomo's re-election campaign.
