WASHINGTON (AP) — Iran will likely be a testy topic when President Barack Obama meets Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Their meeting comes as a three-decade estrangement between the U.S. and Iran may be nearing an end.
As he left Israel on Sunday, Netanyahu said he would — quote — "tell the truth in the face of the sweet talk."
Obama spoke Friday with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roh-HAH'-nee) in the first direct conversation between the two countries' leaders since 1979.
The 15-minute phone call was a watershed diplomatic moment that suggests Rouhani wants to re-engage the West.
But it also irritated Israel, a U.S. ally that has declared an Iranian nuclear program unacceptable.
