Meridor: Obama's announcment 'sets record straight'

US President Barack Obama's announcement that there will be no change in US policy regarding Israel's nuclear arsenal was significant, Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor was quoted as saying Wednesday.
The minister, who is also in charge of nuclear affairs, noted that the sentiment did not signify a change in US policy.
"I think that this entire presentation gives a clear picture of the understanding between Israel and the United States in this matter, and sets the record straight," Meridor told Reuters in an interview, reiterating Israel's stand that it would have to be assured of reconciliation with its neighbors before it could consider a disarmament treaty.
