On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump held a press conference, where they discussed how to deal with Iran, the US, Israel and Syria.
“There are two ways of looking at it, but the first is to attack Iran,” Netanyahu said.
“We will continue to attack them with every means of the toolbox we have, in the interests of peace and stability in the region.”
Trump also said he was considering military action against Iran, and the US was “not shy about saying that”.
But the US president added: “There’s a different way.
That’s the way that it has to be. “
That’s not a choice.
You have to negotiate with your enemies.” “
You have to get a deal.
You have to negotiate with your enemies.”
Trump said he would have to ask Congress for authorization before making any decisions, saying: “We’re going to do that.
And we’re going there with the right approach. “
But I will tell you one thing: You have got to get it right.
“And I hope the Israelis understand this. “
It’s not going away. “
And I hope the Israelis understand this.
Netanyahu’s comments came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman also expressed concern about the possibility of a war with Iran. “
If you can get a very good deal, a very positive deal with the Israelis, then I’m sure they’re going as well.”
Netanyahu’s comments came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman also expressed concern about the possibility of a war with Iran.
“Iran is continuing to threaten and violate international agreements and norms,” Pompeo said.
Lieberman added: “[Pompeo] is the president who is the one who is making this decision, not the president.
The president is making that decision, and it’s a decision based on national security and interests of the United States of America.”
Trump is also concerned about Iran’s nuclear program, but said the country had a “tremendous” deterrent force.
“They have tremendous military capabilities,” Trump said.
US president Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hold a joint news conference at the White House in Washington, DC, on March 25, 2021.
Trump said the US would take “the lead” in pressuring Iran to stop its nuclear program.
