In a briefing with reporters, Netanyahu said that the Iranian issue was dealt with in depth, and that both Jerusalem and Washington see the issue from a similar vantage point.
This, he said, was in contrast to the situation under US President Barack Obama, which Netanyahu said saw Iran as a solution to the problems in the Middle East. Trump, he said, sees Iran as the problem.
Netanyahu said that he senses a change in the American system regarding Iran, and that this is also influencing the international community.
“The Americans have a desire to fix the agreement, and I offered a plan on how to do it,” he said, without going into detail.
Netanyahu said he expressed his position as “clearly as possible,” that if the agreement is not changed, “it will lead to the nuclearization of Iran.”
