After a secret meeting with US President Barack Obama’s advisor Dennis Ross, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting Berlin on a visit focused on Iran.
[efoods]An Israeli delegation comprising Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have headed to Germany to attend the second German-Israeli cabinet meeting in the German capital Berlin.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle are to host the meetings originally scheduled for November.
Netanyahu last week secretly met with Dennis Ross, a senior advisor to the Obama administration on Iran, who had accompanied US National Security Advisor James Jones to Israel.
“On the agenda is obviously, among other issues, international pressure on Iran,” the prime minster’s Spokesman Mark Regev said on Monday.
