Trump and Netanyahu discuss coordination on countering Iran
US President Donald Trump spoke on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
A readout of the phone call issued by the White House said the two leaders "agreed to continue their close coordination on countering Iran’s malign influence and destabilizing activities" in the region.
The conversation between Trump and Netanyahu also follows the US president's suggestion that he could pull troops out of Syria "very soon," the Hill reported.
Trump has voiced support in recent days for an early withdrawal from the wartorn country. Such a move, however, would go against the advice of many national security officials, who have warned that a US presence is needed in the country to keep Islamic State militants at bay and stave off Iranian influence in the region.
