Iran says that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, but Israel and the U.S. believe that the Islamic Republic is developing nuclear weapons that could threaten the existence of the Jewish state.
As reported by the site voaindonesia, analyst Gerald Steinberg believes the Israeli prime minister would tell President Obama that if international diplomacy and sanctions fail, Israel prepared to take military action against Iran, without the support of other countries.
Domestic issues and issues regarding the Palestinian issue have ruled Iran for a while. But Netanyahu said reviving peace talks with the Palestinians after a deadlock of four years is a priority. Steinberg did not expect any breakthrough.
Palestinians refused to return to the negotiating table until Israel halt all settlement expansion, request denied by the Israeli government before. But there is speculation that the visit of President Obama and a more moderate coalition in power, Israel may be willing to make concessions on the issue of settlements.
Obama will address these issues with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas when they meet next week in the West Bank.
