WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump spoke on Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about Iran and other issues, the White House said in a brief statement.
“The leaders discussed the threat from Iran, as well as other critical bilateral and regional issues,” the White House said in an email statement.
Relations between Iran and the United States have worsened since last year when Trump pulled out of Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and reimposed sanctions on the country.
