Clinton: Strike on Iran is ‘not in anyone’s interest’
A unilateral strike by Israel on Iran’s nuclear facilities is not the best course of action, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.
“It’s our very strong belief, as President Obama conveyed to the Israelis, that it is not in anyone’s interest for them to take unilateral action,” Clinton said in an ABC News interview on Tuesday.
Clinton noted the intelligence cooperation between the United States and Israel, and she reiterated that “the U.S. has worked very hard with Israel on all levels from the military, intelligence, strategic, and diplomatic level to make sure we were sharing information.”
Whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will strike Iranian nuclear installations and the U.S. response to such an action continue to be topics of wider discussion in many policy circles.
