Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the only foreign leader he can recall who has forcibly interfered in a foreign policy debate in Washington, US President Barack Obama said in an interview aired Sunday.
Obama spoke about Netanyahu in an interview he gave to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that was taped Thursday, but aired in full Sunday night.
In a clip released ahead of the airing, Zakaria asked Obama about Netanyahu’s stiff opposition to the deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program reached between Tehran and the six world powers – the US, Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany.
Congress is expected to vote on the deal by September 17. Netanyahu has mounted a public campaign against the deal which he believes is a historic mistake because it legitimizes Iran’s nuclear program and leaves it with the ability to produce atomic weapons.
