White House: US, Israel In Full Agreement On Iran

The White House says President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remain in "full agreement" about keeping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

The Obama administration's account of Friday's phone call offered no mention of Netanyahu's dire declaration to the U.N. General Assembly. The Israeli leader on Thursday held up an image of a bomb and warned that the world only has until next summer to stop Iran from building one.

Obama has promised that the United States will do what it must to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weaponry, but faces pressure from Netanyahu to be more specific in public about what would cause Washington to intervene.

The White House account emphasized the "close cooperation" between the U.S. and Israeli governments over threats posed by Iran.
