Diplomacy with Iran over its nuclear program can achieve greater security for Israel and the United States than could military action, US President Barack Obama said on Saturday, putting the success of his strategic effort to avoid confrontation at no more than a flip of a coin.

"Israel cannot contract out its security," Obama said. But "there are times where I, as president of the United States, am going to have different tactical perspectives than the prime minister of Israel." 

Obama was speaking to the Brookings Institution's Saban Forum.
