Israel: 'Iran must be stopped' - Netanyahu in joint presser with Pompeo

"Recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is recognising reality," stated the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking at the joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Sunday.

He underlined that the US "remains committed to achieving the lasting, comprehensive peace that offers a brighter future for Israel and Palestinians".

Speaking of Iran, Pompeo pointed out that if the deal could not be fixed, Trump "is going to withdraw from the deal. He's pretty straightforward." "The United States is with Israel in the fight and we strongly support Israel's sovereign right to defend itself," added the US Secretary of State.

Netanyahu praised the US administration for its position on Iran, for support and "the common effort which encompasses many other countries".

"Iran must be stopped. Its quest for nuclear bombs must be stopped. Its aggression must be stopped and we're committed to stopping it together," noted Netanyahu.
