US President Barack Obama is willing to up pressure against the Iranian nuclear program if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will open talks with Abbas on borders and security issues, The Sunday Times reported.

According to the report, the US promised to raise the heat on the Iran issue in return for more open talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas even if core issues such as Jerusalem and the issues of Palestinian refugees is not raised.

The Times quoted Aaron David Miller, of the Woodrow Wilson Center, an adviser on the Middle East to six US secretaries of state as saying "Barack Obama does not want to be the American president on whose watch Iran acquires a nuclear weapon or be accused of presiding over the demise of what’s left of the two-state solution."
