Netanyahu expects tough stance from Trump in any meeting with Rouhani
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared resigned on Thursday to a possible meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, after voicing opposition to world powers opening a dialogue with Iran.
The Israeli leader, who earlier in the day asserted that this was not the time to hold talks with Iran, said he recognized the possibility of a Trump-Rouhani meeting, and that it was not up to him to tell Trump with whom he could meet.
“I’m sure Trump will take a much tougher position,” Netanyahu told reporters traveling with him to London, an official in the prime minister’s office later said.
