Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Wednesday endorsed the legality of Israeli television stations broadcasting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's upcoming controversial speech on Iran before Congress.

Critics had objected to the broadcast, calling the speech political grandstanding since it falls only weeks before the March 17 Israeli elections.

But Weinstein rejected the criticism, calling broadcasting the speech valid news reporting.
