Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who is recovering from a stroke.

“The two discussed issues related to Iran and the urgent need for tougher sanctions,” said a statement Monday from the office of Kirk, who helped shape the most recent sanctions targeting Iran’s finance and energy sectors.

“They agreed to remain in close contact on issues of mutual concern,” the statement continued.

Kirk suffered a stroke in January.
