Israel National News reported:
U.S. President Barack Obama has reportedly asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to stop being so vocal with his criticism of the deal reached between Iran and the West, reports The Washington Post.
The newspaper’s columnist David Ignatius wrote on Thursday, “Obama has asked Netanyahu to take a breather from his clamorous criticism and send to Washington a team that can explore with U.S. officials a sound end-state strategy.”
“Perhaps the United States and Israel need a back channel, outside the bombastic pressure campaign by Israeli advocates,” he added in the column, which dealt with Washington’s plans for the next six months, during which the Western powers and Iran are supposed to work out a permanent agreement.
Netanyahu has openly criticized the deal that was reached between Iran and Western powers in talks in Geneva, explaining that it allows Iran to continue its nuclear program while getting sanctions relief.
Netanyahu called the nuclear deal a historic mistake.
