The White House says President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have reaffirmed that the two countries are united in their determination to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Obama and Netanyahu spoke for an hour Tuesday night. The White House says they agreed to continue "close consultations going forward" regarding Iran's nuclear ambitions.
The White House denied published reports that Obama had rejected Netanyahu's request to meet with Obama in Washington next week. The White House says no such request was made or rejected.
The announcement comes after Netanyahu criticized what he called the world's failure to spell out what would provoke a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. Netanyahu has urged the U.S. to set "red lines" for Tehran. The Obama administration has refused.
