The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, told the Prime Minister of Israel today that diplomacy is the first option in talks on the nuclear deal with Iran, but acknowledged “other options.”
“We put diplomacy first and see where that leads us, but if diplomacy fails, we are ready to move on to other options,” the American head of state said during his first face-to-face meeting with the new prime minister. Naftali Bennett in the White House.
Bennett arrived at the White House in an attempt to dissuade Biden from resuming the nuclear deal with Iran, which was reached during Barack Obama’s presidency and later scrapped by former President Donald Trump.
Since the United States terminated the agreement in 2018, the Iranian regime has abandoned all of the agreement’s restrictions on its uranium enrichment program.
According to the Associated Press, Iran is capable of enriching uranium to up to 63%, just below what is needed for weapons, compared to the 3.67% value recorded during the agreement.
Bennett said he had a strategy to introduce Biden, but declined to announce it, stressing that he was only happy that the two leaders were on the same page in agreement that Iran should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons.
“Iran is the first country in the world to export terrorism, instability and human rights abuses,” Bennett said, adding, “As we sit here, the Iranians are using centrifuges. [de urânio] At Natanz and Fordow, we have to stop them, and we both agree on that.”
The meeting between the two rulers was scheduled for Thursday, but was postponed by a day due to the attacks in Kabul.
