Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that the purpose of his upcoming visit to the United States next month was to warn against the Iranian threat and to discuss the ongoing peace process.

Speaking at Likud Beytenu's weekly faction meeting, Netanyahu warned that Iran continues its role as a "terror state," and therefore it must never be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons.

Netanyahu said that he would make clear in discussions on the peace process that Israel's interests must be upheld, including recognition of the country's Jewish nature and the security of the state's citizens.

The prime minister said that, in addition to meeting with US President Barack Obama and addressing AIPAC's annual conference during his trip, he would also be visiting the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles in order to promote Israel's economic interests.
