Netanyahu heads to US to tell Obama ‘truth’ about Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Barack Obama to discuss the “smokescreen” the Iranian president used to fool Western powers. The White House meeting will take place before Netanyahu addresses the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

“I intend to tell the truth in the face of the sweet talk and  charm offensive of Iran,” Netanyahu said before  boarding the plane to New York.

“Telling the truth at this time is essential for world peace  and security and, of course, for Israel’s security,” AFP  cites him as saying.

After Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the United Nations  General Assembly last week, Netanyahu called the speech   “cynical” and “full of hypocrisy,” saying it was  aimed at fooling the Western powers while Iran continues  advancing towards a nuclear weapons capability

Following the historic conversation between the leaders of Iran  and US on Friday – the first such talk in more than three decades  – Netanyahu instructed his ministers and senior officials to keep  silent and not comment on the development.

Following the phone call, Iranian hard-liners hurled shoes and eggs at  Rouhani’s car chanting “Death to America” and “Death to  Israel” as he arrived in Tehran.

Netanyahu will speak with Obama on Monday during a two-hour long  meeting in Washington, where the two leaders are also expected to  discuss Syria and Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.

On Tuesday, the Israeli PM will be the last speaker to address  the 68th UN General Assembly in New York.
