Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Western Wall on Saturday evening and said that while he respects US President Barack Obama, it is the premier's duty to ensure the security of Israel from an agreement on Iran's nuclear program that would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state.

"I believe the strong relationship between Israel and the United States provides the fortitude to overcome our differences, those of the past and those that are bound to arise in the future," Netanyahu said on the eve of a controversial trip to Washington, where he will address a joint session of Congress.
