Obama phones Netanyahu about Iran Deal

Obama phones Netanyahu about Iran Deal

Obama phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from Air Force One on Thursday to discuss the nuclear deal with Iran, the White House said.

Obama told Netanyahu “the framework represents significant progress towards a lasting, comprehensive solution that cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb and verifiably ensures the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program going forward,” according to a statement.

The president said the nuclear agreement “in no way diminishes our concerns with respect to Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism and threats towards Israel” and directed his national security team to increase security consultations between the two governments.

During the call, Netanyahu told Obama that “a deal based on this framework would threaten the survival of Israel,” according to Mark Regev, a spokesman for the prime minister.

“This deal would legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, bolster Iran’s economy & increase Iran’s aggression & terror,” Regev tweeted. “Such a deal would not block Iran’s path to the bomb. It would pave it.”

As Israel fears for its existence, Iranians party in the streets to celebrate victory
