Netanyahu and Pompeo Discuss ‘Recent Regional Developments’

15 January, 2020   |   3 months ago

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke on Tuesday with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and discussed “recent regional developments,” Pompeo stated.

He said the conversation was “productive.”

“As always, the US commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering,” he added.

The Prime Minister’s Office uncharacteristically remained silent on the issue.

Their conversation took place after France, Britain and Germany announced they have triggered the Iran nuclear deal dispute mechanism, which could lead to a renewal of further sanctions on Iran following the latter’s recent breaches of the 2015 accord.

Netanyahu has spoken to President Donald Trump and Pompeo several times in recent weeks following the mounting tensions in the Middle East, and specifically after the US’ assassination of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) General Qassem Soleimani and Iran’s retaliatory strikes on US bases in Iraq.
