US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Sunday that "there is no daylight" between Israel and the United States on the issue of the Iranian nuclear program. The comments came after a media blitz by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the United States, during which the Israeli leader pressed US President Barack Obama to set a clear "red line" for Tehran, something Obama has refused to do.

"The United States is in constant communication with Israel," Rice said. "Our intelligence assessments are very similar. Obviously we share a grave concern about Iran pursuing a nuclear weapon. We are determined to prevent that from happening. President Obama has been absolutely clear, and on this there is absolutely no daylight between the United States and Israel, that we will do what it takes to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. We are not at that stage yet."
