United States officials on Sunday said they “appreciate” the Israeli government’s criticism of the interim agreement signed between the Western powers and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program.

In Washington, a senior US official said President Barack Obama would discuss Israel's misgivings with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday.

"Ultimately we understand and appreciate how Israel is particularly skeptical about Iran. Given the threats that have been made about Israel from Tehran we understand why Israel will want to make sure that this is the best deal possible," the official said.

"I would say that what we have now is a six-month period to test whether the new leadership in Iran continues to follow through their commitment to move Iran on a new path. What we will know after six months is whether there can be a solution."
