Ayalon Satisfied with Obama Speech


Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon expressed satisfaction, Sunday evening, with the speech by United States President Barack Obama, earlier in the day, at the convention of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Interviewed by Channel 2 television, Ayalon said that while Israel agrees with sanctions and isolating Iran over its nuclear development program, there must be results. By virtue of Obama taking responsibility, Ayalon, said, the Tehran regime must take notice.

Ayalon added that he did not expect Monday's meeting between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to bring about a dramatic change in reality.
