WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama said Monday that there is still a "window" for a diplomatic resolution on Iran's nuclear issue.
Sitting beside visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, Obama reiterated that it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, vowing to keep all options on the table, Xinhua reported.
While reaffirming America's "rock-solid" commitment to Israel's security, Obama said that Washington will continue to tighten pressure on Iran.
Rejecting the notion of a containment policy on a potentially nuclear-armed Iran, he said that the aim of his administration is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.
Obama added that the level of the close consultation and coordination between the two allies' militaries and intelligence services has been "unprecedented".
