US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Sunday in Beit-ul-Muqaddas to discuss Iran.

Calling Bolton a “tremendous friend of Israel”, Netanyahu said, “I look forward to discussing with you a whole array of topics, but the most important one is how to continue to roll back Iran’s aggression in the region and to make sure that they never have nuclear weapons. Many other things, but I think this is a good starting point,” Reuters reported.

“We’ve got great challenges for Israel, for the United States, for the whole world - the Iran nuclear weapons program and ballistic missile programs are right at the top of the list,” Bolton said.

Bolton will meet Russian officials in Geneva later in the week as a follow-up to the summit meeting that President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had in Helsinki last month, the White House said. He will also visit Ukraine.

Bolton told ABC News in an interview earlier that the United States, Israel and Russia shared the objective of removing Iranian and Iranian-led forces from Syria.
