Now that the nuclear agreement with Iran is a done deal, despite Israeli opposition, Kerry declared that “the fight’s over.” As for moving forward, Netanyahu said he and the US see “eye-to-eye.”
US Secretary of State John Kerry said that “the fight’s over” between the Obama Administration and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the Iran nuclear deal.
“I think he recognized that the fight’s over and we can move on,” Kerry said on Thursday in Davos, Switzerland, at the annual World Economic Forum, CNN reported.
Indeed, in an interview with CNN earlier Thursday, the Israeli leader discussed, among other issues, the “strong, powerful” and “rock-solid” cooperation and friendship between Washington and Jerusalem.
After years of fighting against the signing of a nuclear agreement with Iran, Netanyahu – who in fact had the support of political leaders across the spectrum in Israel, including the Opposition leader – continues to bemoan the deal, saying he’d “be the happiest person” if proven wrong. “It’s no secret that I oppose this deal,” he told CNN, but moving forward, there are necessary steps to take: Monitoring any violation on the part of Iran, resisting Iranian aggression in the region and dismantling Iran’s global terror network.
“I think on this we see eye-to-eye with the United States and with President Obama,” Netanyahu stated.
