Obama updates PM on Iran talks, says committed to Iran not having nukes

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu on Friday afternoon to discuss developing talks in Geneva over Iran's nuclear program, just as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Switzerland to clinch an interim deal that Israel's government openly opposes.
The call marked the end of a hard day in the relationship between the two leaders. Just before personally meeting with Kerry in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu spoke in front of cameras with unprecedented anger, ripping at the deal being forged in Geneva as a clear victory for the Islamic Republic, orchestrated by the United States.
"The President provided the Prime Minister with an update on negotiations in Geneva and underscored his strong commitment to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, which is the aim of the ongoing negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran," the White House said in a statement.
