America can "absolutely" afford to fund Israel's war with Gaza in addition to Ukraine's war with Russia, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told Sky News in an interview released on Monday.

"America can certainly afford to stand with Israel and to support Israel's military needs and we also can and must support Ukraine in its struggle against Russia," Yellen said.

"We do need to come up with funds, both for Israel and for Ukraine. This is a priority," she added.

Asked if America's support for Israel was "unconditional," Yellen responded: "America stands behind Israel -- period. We stand with Israel ... They have a right to defend themselves."
