Netanyahu ready to discuss Iranian nuclear deal with Trump

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would discuss with Donald Trump the West's nuclear deal with Iran after the US president-elect enters the White House.

"Israel is committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. That has not changed and will not change. As far as President-elect Trump, I look forward to speaking to him about what to do about this bad deal," Netanyahu told the Saban Forum in Washington via satellite from Jerusalem.

"The problem isn't so much that Iran will break the deal, but that Iran will keep it because it just can walk in within a decade, and even less to industrial-scale enrichment of uranium to make the core of an arsenal of nuclear weapons," Reuters cited Netanyahu as saying.
