United States President Barack Obama on Wednesday said there was “nothing new” in Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, saying the Israeli Prime Minister did not offer a better option than negotiations to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
“We’re staying focused on the central issue here. How do we prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon? The path that we proposed, if successful, by far is the best way to do that. That’s demonstrable,” Obama told reporters at the Oval Office of the White House.
