Benjamin Netanyahu Tells Joe Biden U.S. Needs To Threaten Iran

At a conference in New Orleans, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Vice President Joe Biden that only a “credible” military threat will deter Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

However, Biden said after the talks that the sanctions “have a bite” and were having a “measurable impact,” though he expressed frustration that Tehran had brushed aside overtures by President Barack Obama’s administration.

Netanyahu and Biden met on the sidelines of an American Jewish conference in New Orleans, and also discussed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks suspended in a dispute over building in settlements in the West Bank.

“The only way to ensure that Iran will not go nuclear is to create a credible threat of military action against it if it doesn’t cease its race for a nuclear weapon,” one of the sources said Netanyahu told Biden.

Netanyahu will meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Thursday in New York.
