Don’t trust Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s charm offensive is the message that World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder brought to Vice President Joseph Biden during a meeting in Washington on Tuesday.
Lauder and Biden discussed the Iranian regime’s outreach efforts to the west, aimed at mitigating the worst effects of western sanctions on their nation’s weakening economy during a breakfast meeting at the Vice President’s official residence.
Lauder emphasized that "Tehran must comply fully with all UN Security Council resolutions regarding its nuclear program,” the WJC wrote in a statement.
Biden responded positively, the WJC noted, pledging to work closely with the international Jewish organization on the issue.
"The Vice President was truly receptive to concerns about the Iranian threat and pledged to ensure that all conditions and requirements are met," Lauder said. "I look forward to working closely with him as the negotiations unfold."
