Netanyahu arrives in US to oppose Iran nuclear deal

Guardian UK - 3 hours 34 min ago

More than 30 Democrats threaten to boycott Israeli prime minister’s planned speech in Congress

Israel and the US are bracing this week for the most strained moment in relations since Barack Obama came to power, after the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, arrived in Washington on Sunday night to urge Congress to oppose a nuclear deal with Iran.

As he flew out of Ben Gurion airport, Netanyahu described his 48-hour trip to Washington as “a fateful, even historic mission”, which is to culminate in a controversial speech to Congress in which he will speak out against an emerging pact with Iran over its nuclear programme.

Fernández said documents had been found in Nisman’s safe, one written in December and the other in January. She said in both he spoke favourably of the president’s speeches to the United Nations aimed at getting justice for the attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association, which killed 85 people.
