(AP) Netanyahu to convey Iranian concerns to Romney
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he’ll tell Mitt Romney in their July 28 meeting about Israel’s wish for Mideast peace and concerns about “the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons.”
Netanyahu says those are the same messages he conveyed four years ago to then-Sen. Barack Obama when Obama was running for president and visited Israel before the election.
Netanyahu tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that as for the concern about Iran, “unfortunately it’s still with us four years later” and he worries about the “growing arsenal of the terrorists with Iranian backers.” Iran says its atomic program is for peaceful purposes only.
The prime minister was asked whether he’d be as comfortable with Romney as he is with Obama. Netanyahu’s response: “I’m just not going to go that way.”
