(JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked members of the U.S.  Senate Foreign Relations Committee for their support in working to halt Iran’s  nuclear program.
At a meeting Monday night, Netanyahu offered his gratitude to the senators  for approving sanctions against Iran, The Hill reported, citing senators in the  meeting.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) the top Republican on the Foreign Relations  Committee, said Netanyahu gave “very detailed” answers about his views.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked President  Obama not to relieve sanctions or military pressure on Iran until the Islamic  Republic proves that it has ended its suspected nuclear weapons program.
“I believe it’s the combination of a credible military threat and the  pressure of the sanctions that has brought Iran to the negotiating table,”  Netanyahu said Monday during a break in his White House meeting with Obama.  “Both pressures must be kept in place. They should not be lessened until there  is verifiable success.”
Netanyahu and Obama differ on the sincerity of Iranian President Hassan  Rouhani’s willingness to reach an agreement on ending the suspected military  nuclear program in Iran.
The Israeli leader has called the newly elected Rouhani a “wolf in sheep’s  clothing,” while Obama has welcomed his overtures. The American president spoke  with Rouhani by phone last week — the highest U.S. contact with an Iranian  leader since the 1979 revolution.
