Hillary Clinton Rejects Bibi's Iran 'Red Lines'

Secretary of State Calls for More Negotiations

Despite talks between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office and the White House over the possibility of drawing red lines concerning the Iranian nuclear program, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the White House is not prepared to make such a public commitment.

“We’re not setting deadlines,” Clinton said in an interview with Bloomberg Radio.

On Sunday, Netanyahu said that Israel and the U.S. are discussing applying further pressure on Iran, and called for drawing red lines that if crossed will prompt a military strike against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facilities. Netanyahu stressed that these lines are the only way a war can be avoided.

Clinton rejected Netanyahu’s stance, saying that negotiations are “by far the best approach” to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
