Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks at Ambassadors' Conference in Jerusalem at Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jan. 21 2018

It’s not a good idea to ignore U.S. President Donald Trump.

That was the warning Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued Sunday night in Jerusalem during remarks before the Ambassador’s Conference at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


“On security, I have a message for the countries of Europe,” he said. “I suggest that they take President Trump’s words seriously.

“If they want to preserve the nuclear agreement with Iran, they must propose amendments to the agreement that will prevent Iran from going nuclear, which threatens them and the entire world.”

Netanyahu said in his opening remarks earlier in the day at the start of the weekly government cabinet meeting that issue would be among the issues he plans to discuss during his meeting on Monday with visiting U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

“We will discuss the efforts of the Trump administration to block Iran’s aggression and the Iranian nuclear program,” he said, “and of course advancing security and peace in the region.  Whoever truly aspires to realize these goals knows that there is no substitute for US leadership.”
