Trump calls Netanyahu to talk about Iran — PMO
US President Trump calls Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the Iranian nuclear deal and the regime’s recent belligerent acts, according to a readout from the Prime Minister’s Office.
The two leaders talked “at length” about the “dangers emanating from Iran and Iranian aggression in the region and the need to work together to deal with these threats,” the PMO says.
Netanyahu thanks Trump for the warm welcome he received last month in the White House. He also expresses his gratitude for his “forceful statement against anti-Semitism” during his speech last week to a joint meeting of the US Congress.
