Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Wednesday said that he and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in agreement on most of the issues raised in their meeting Tuesday in Washington, most importantly, "there is understanding and agreement that Iran must be prevented from getting a nuclear weapon."

Israel and the world should monitor the effects of the sanctions already put in place, and thank the United States for its recent efforts to levy new sanctions on the Islamic Republic, the foreign minister told Israel Radio. Iran, he said, is looking for ways to transfer money despite the sanctions and "we need to limit their ability to operate in the banking system."
