Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Iran's nuclear program will be at the focus of his talks with United States President Barack Obama next week.

"At the end of the week, I will leave for North America," he said at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting. "I will meet with President Barack Obama in Washington and, before that, with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa."

"Of course, our region is in an unsettled state and is quickly changing in all directions, including the deplorable massacres that we see being perpetrated against innocent civilians in Syria.  While we will discuss all of these issues, there is no doubt that one issue will be at the center of our talks, and that is, of course, the continued strengthening of Iran and its nuclear program.

"Whoever needed it, received additional, biting proof in the form of the IAEA's latest report, which proves that Israel's assessments were correct: i.e., that Iran is continuing to make rapid progress in its nuclear program, without let-up, while defying and grossly ignoring the decisions of the international community.  We will certainly discuss this issue, as well as many others related to the Middle East.
