White House: We Agree with Prime Minister Netanyahu that the Iranian Regime Has to Abandon Its Nuclear Weapons Ambitions


jay-carneyWhite House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday: “The purpose of sanctions is to affect the decisions the Iranian government makes. And since Iran has not yet decided to come in line with their international obligations, we are disappointed – as Prime Minister Netanyahu is – that Iran continues to ignore its international obligations. The United States remains committed to a diplomatic solution, but the onus is on Iran.”

“The U.S. and Israel, as we’ve seen in recent days, have an extremely close and cooperative relationship both militarily and in terms of intelligence. We share information regularly on what is happening in Iran with regards to its behavior and its fulfillment, or lack thereof, of its international obligations. And we agree with Prime Minister Netanyahu that the Iranian regime has yet to make the choice it needs to make, which is to abandon its nuclear weapons ambitions and fulfill its obligations.”
