The Obama administration has rejected a request to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu aimed at providing Israeli leaders clarity on U.S. policy regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

While estimates on how quickly Iran will have a nuclear bomb ranges from weeks to a year, relations between Israel and the Obama administration are frayed.

 

Netanyahu asked to meet with Mr. Obama in the United States this month, an Israeli official said on Tuesday, but Obama reportedly will not make time for the prime minister this month, even as talk of war ramps up, according to a Reuters report.

 

Netanyahu met with Obama each time he visited the U.S. since 2009, and had recently pushed for Washington to define what, if anything, it would consider a red line Iran should not cross without expecting military consequences.
