Obama Netanyahu Iran

Obama Netanyahu Iran, President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday sought to offer a united front against Iran’s growing nuclear program but appeared to differ on whether a diplomatic solution remains possible or if military action is needed to prevent Tehran from gaining a nuclear bomb.

At a White House meeting, Netanyahu said he reserved the option to launch a unilateral attack on Iran despite Obama’s position that more time is needed for stiff economic sanctions and international diplomacy to work.

“When it comes to Israel’s security, Israel has the right, the sovereign right, to make its own decisions,” Netanyahu told Obama in a brief session with reporters in the Oval Office. “I believe that’s why you appreciate, Mr. President, that Israel must reserve the right to defend itself.”

The two leaders’ last Oval Office meeting, in May, ended in acrimony when Netanyahu lectured Obama before TV cameras on the president’s proposal to revive moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
