Netanyahu: Allies, Too, Can Differ in Opinion


In this morning's (Sunday) weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu addressed the divide between the Obama Administration and Israel regarding Iran.

"Even friends can differ in opinon, especially when it comes to the issues of our future and our national security," the Prime Minister said to United States Secretary of State John Kerry, who is due to arrive in Israel this coming Friday. 

"It is my hope we can convince our friends to obtain a much better agreement," Netanyahu said. "Only through increasing and maintaining pressure on Iran will pave the way to peace," the Prime Minister added.
