Canada.com reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that he “appreciated” President Barack Obama’s statements on Iran and was looking forward to discussing them when he arrives in Washington Monday.
“I very much appreciated that President Obama reiterated his position that Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons and that all options are on the table,” Netanyahu said.
Natanyahu said he also appreciated the fact that Obama “made clear that when it comes to a nuclear-armed Iran, containment is simply not an option. And equally, perhaps in my judgment most important of all, I appreciated the fact that he said that Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat.”
Netanyahu spoke at a private reception with Canadian Jewish leaders in Ottawa Sunday, the last day on his three-day visit to Canada.
