Even though the US thus far has hesitated to delineate "red lines" on Iran's nuclear program it may well do so in the coming months, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz told Israel Radio on Sunday.

According to Steinitz, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech to the UN General Assembly last week did a "masterful job" of bringing the Iranian nuclear threat to the forefront of the international community's attention, effectively waking the world from its "dogmatic slumber."

Ambassador to the US Michael Oren also commended Netanyahu, telling Israel Radio that the PM's speech on Iran has "led to increased cooperation between Israel and the US."

He added that there is no daylight between the two allies, who are both committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
