Obama at Saban: We Prefer Diplomacy, But All Options On Table
Speaking at Saban Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Obama presents diplomatic agreement as stopgap solution for nuclear program.
“What I try to describe is not a choice between this deal and the ideal, but this deal and other alternatives,” he stated. "The best way to prevent that is through a comprehensive, verifiable, diplomatic resolution."
Obama also assured Israelis that US-Israel relations "have never been stronger" and that 'Israel's security is sacrosanct."
