White House declines to specify what ‘other options’ for dealing with Iran means

Asked to elaborate on US President Joe Biden’s remarks to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that his administration will be willing to pursue “other options” if diplomatic efforts to block Iran from a nuclear bomb fail, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declines to do so.

“I’m not going to outline those from here,” she says during the daily press briefing, insisting that diplomacy is Biden’s first preference and that that is what the White House is currently focused on.

Talks to revive the Iran nuclear deal are expected to reconvene in Vienna next month.
