Netanyahu-Trump Meeting on IranNetanyahu-Trump Meeting on Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening left for Washington, where he was scheduled to discuss issues concerning Iran with US President Donald Trump.

Before taking off, Netanyahu said, “First and foremost, I will discuss Iran with the president ahead of the decision on the nuclear program,” Israel National News reported.

Trump gave the nuclear agreement another reprieve on January 12, saying it is the last chance for European allies and the US Congress to fix what he says are “disastrous flaws” in the accord within four months or Washington would withdraw from it.

Netanyahu said discussions will also include Iran’s regional policies, the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians, and the US decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Beit-ul-Moqaddas.

White House spokesman Joshua Raffel had said earlier that the nuclear deal and Tehran’s involvement in the Syrian civil war would be featured in talks between the two officials, according to the Washington Post.
