US to prevent Iran acquiring nuclear weapons

Speaking in a joint press conference with his Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid, Blinken said Washington believes that restoring a nuclear deal with Iran “is the best way to put Iran’s program back in the box it was in.”

Blinken acknowledged that there are “disagreements” with Israel on the Iranian nuclear issue, but reiterated that the US commitment to prevent Iran from “acquiring a nuclear weapon is unwavering.”

Lapid, for his part, said that Israel will do anything “needed to stop the Iranian nuclear program.”
