Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged world powers not to open a dialogue with Iran, after U.S. President Donald Trump said he may meet his Iranian counterpart to resolve a crisis over Tehran’s nuclear program and sanctions against it.
"This is not the time to hold talks with Iran. This is the time to increase the pressure on Iran," Netanyahu said before boarding a flight to London.
In London, Netanyahu is due to meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and U.S. Defence Secretary Mark Esper, Reuters reported.
Yesterday, Trump left the door open to a possible meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the upcoming U.N. General Assembly in New York.
