Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday said leadership is tested when upholding national interests, "even if there are disagreements with friends, even the best of friends," referring to a public rift with the United States over Iran's nuclear program.

"As prime minister of Israel, it is my duty to uphold the vital interests of the State of Israel, to ensure its security and its future," adding that those interests are preventing Iran's "clear steps toward achieving nuclear weapons."
