US President Barack Obama has met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after 13 months.
At the meeting on Monday, Obama said it was “no secret” that he has a “strong disagreement” with Bibi in regard to the nuclear accord between Iran and the world powers, rehashing his rhetoric by stressing that the two leaders agree they should make sure Iran does not get its hands on nukes.
“It’s no secret that the prime minister and I have had a strong disagreement,” the US president said, adding, he was “looking to find common ground” with the Israeli premier.
In mid-June, Tehran reached a nuclear agreement with the global powers that also included Britain, Russia, China, and Germany.
Tel Aviv has falsely been claiming that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program, an allegation that has always been rejected by Tehran.
