White house: President Obama to call Netanyahu on Sunday

November 24, 2013 10:40

A senior US official said Obama planned to call Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday to try to assuage Israeli concerns about the agreement.

The announcement comes on the heels of Jerusalem's outspoken opposition to the agreement reached in Geneva on Saturday.

An official in the Obama administration says that the US understands why Israel was skeptical about Iran. "Let me just say that we understand that there have been some differences but we share the same objective here," the official said.
