Israel's Ambassador to the United States said Thursday that all options were on the table in dealing with Iran's nuclear weapons program. "Both the US and Israel haven't removed any option from the table," Ambassador Sallai Meridor told reporters in Jerusalem. Meridor, who is Israel for the three-day visit by US President George W. Bush, stressed that a diplomatic solution was the preferred way of resolving the showdown. Iran was one of the key topics during the talks between Bush and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert during the president's three-day trip to Israel. On October 22, Meridor called for a unified international as well as domestic American front to counter the Islamic Republic's nuclear ambitions. "This will take a united United States on this matter, that they would not have the illusion today that come January '09, they [Teheran] have it their own way," he said, referring to the inauguration of President George W. Bush's successor, who could potentially change policy on Iran.
