Labor Party MK Binyamin Ben Eliezer said that while Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is correct in his opposition to the Western powers’ interim nuclear agreement with Iran, he disagrees with his strategy of “sparring with Washington.”

The former defense minister told Israel Radio that he applauds the premier for “putting the Iranian  issue on the international agenda.”

Conversely, Netanyahu should remember that “the US is Israel’s most important ally, and ties with it should not be harmed,” Ben Eliezer told Israel Radio.

“There needs to be a change in the way in which the agreement is opposed,” the veteran Labor MK said, calling on Netanyahu aides to negotiate quietly with the White House in a bid to influence the final-status deal that is being discussed with Iran.
