What Did Obama and Netanyahu Discuss?

At Monday’s meeting, the two leaders discussed ways to come to an agreement about the best approach going forward given their divergent approaches. President Obama has made clear that although he stands with Israel, he prefers diplomacy and pressure to the preemptive military action that Israel has threatened.  Before the speech, Obama vowed to use sanctions to prohibit Iran from being able to develop nuclear weapons but rules nothing out, assuring Israel that “all options are at the table.”

 

Senior Obama administration officials said the talks at the White House left the two sides closer than they were a week ago with both sides remaining resolute in their stance that Iran must not develop a nuclear bomb.
