US Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides says that the White House has assured Israel that it will never seek to prevent it from protecting itself against Iran.

At a press conference in Jerusalem, Nides says US President Joe Biden reassured Prime Minister Yair Lapid in their conversation last week that the US “will never allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.”

Nides adds that Biden promised Lapid that the US “will never tie Israel’s hands. We know Iran is a threat.”
