Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog announced Tuesday that he would not be traveling to the US in March to address the AIPAC conference in person.

Herzog defended himself against claims by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu disparaging the Zionist Union leader's lack of involvement in combating a deal that would leave Iran a nuclear threshold state.

"Netanyahu's spin about who is going to Washington must cease. My staunch position against a nuclear Iran is known by all in Israel and America, including the US president. I know how to make my opinion heard clearly and in a way that is influential from here or there.

Channel 2 reported that in lieu of traveling to Washington for March's annual AIPAC policy conference, Herzog would address the meeting by video link from Israel.
