Netanyahu: Battle with Washington over Iran deal served Israel’s interests, didn’t harm ties

Not only did the bruising battle with US President Barack Obama over the Iran nuclear deal not harm Israel’s ties with the US, but it in fact served Israel’s interests as even supporters of the deal now understand the need to combat Iranian regional aggression and strengthen Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday.

Netanyahu said that this was made clear during a phone conversation he held Wednesday night with US Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as in recent comments made by Obama.

Netanyahu’s remarks came as he was inaugurating a new train line from Ashkelon to Beersheba.
