Washington: “America’s commitment to Israel’s security is as strong as steel. As long as I am in power, I will not allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons,” assured US President Joe Biden. President Biden announced during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at the White House. At the time, Biden also said he had issued orders for launching attacks in Iraq and Syria on Iran-backed terrorists, attacking US military bases.
The United States and Israel have been at loggerheads since Biden took office five months ago. Biden was criticised, where he was said to be pursuing former US President Barack Obama’s policies over Iran, and his administration was referred to as Obama 2.0. Also, new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had announced that a new round of talks could begin between the United States and Israel. Accordingly, a meeting of the foreign ministers of the United States and Israel was held in Italy a few hours ago. Furthermore, Israeli President Rivlin met with US President Biden at the White House on Monday. During both visits, the United States reassured Israel that it would not allow Iran to become nuclear-armed.
President Biden has announced that he will soon meet with Israeli Prime Minister Bennett at the White House. Over the past few days, the Biden administration has indicated taking a tougher policy on Iran. In Iran, Raisi, an extremist leader who was recently elected president, has announced that he would be taking Iran’s nuclear program forward more aggressively. Therefore, the US policy towards Iran appears to have changed in the wake of the events.
