U.S. President Repeats Threats Against Iran After Meeting Netanyahu

Washington, October 2 (RHC)-- U.S. President Barack Obama has once again repeated his threats of military action against Iran after a meeting with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House.

Deeply concerned about eased tensions between Iran and the U.S. after Tehran called for diplomatic negotiations with the West to resolve the standoff over its nuclear energy program, Netanyahu headed to Washington in order to persuade Obama that diplomacy should not be used to deal with Iran over its nuclear program.

Following a meeting with Netanyahu at the White House on Monday, Obama threatened Iran with military action and claimed that Iran is calling for diplomatic negotiations over its nuclear energy program because of the illegal sanctions Washington has imposed on Iran.

And the U.S. president emphasized that his administration will "take no options off the table, including military options." In response, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif criticized Obama for his remarks, saying the U.S. president is being "disrespectful of a nation."
