Netanyahu, Trump, discuss Iran


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently spoke with US President Donald Trump, the White House reported.

According to the report, the call addressed “recent developments in the Middle East” and Trump “reiterated the commitment of the United States to Israel’s security.”

The two leaders also “agreed to continue their close coordination on countering Iran’s malign influence and destabilizing activities.”

US President Donald Trump, who has called the 2015 Iran deal “the worst deal ever negotiated,” recently extended a waiver on nuclear sanctions that were imposed on Iran. However, he emphasized, that it would be the last time he would do so and ordered European allies and Congress to work with him to fix the deal’s “disastrous flaws.” If the European signatories do not fix the deal by May 12, Washington will withdraw.

In response, the three European signatories – France, Britain and Germany – have proposed new EU sanctions targeting Iranians who support Syria’s government in that country’s civil war and Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

Iran denies it is in violation of any UN resolutions and categorically rules out any negotiations on its missile program.
