The United States is increasing its "security aid" to Israel by 25 per cent, from 2.4 to 3 billion US dollars starting next year, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

The radio was quoting a senior Israeli official in the entourage of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as he was returning from a visit to Washington.

President George W. Bush had made the commitment to Olmert during Tuesday's talks at the White House, the official said, calling it the premier's 'biggest achievement' of his trip.
