US President Barack Obama prefers to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat in a "diplomatic" manner, he said during a press conference Wednesday held at Prime Minister Netanyahu's Office, part of his Middle East visit.

He insisted that "all options remain on the table" and added that a "nuclear armed iran would be threat to region, the world, and an existential threat to Israel."

As much as Obama prefers a diplomatic solution, he added that "Iran's leader must understand they must meet international obligations."

"I can say with confidence that Israel's security is guaranteed, and its got a great deal on its side," he said.
