Carter, Netanyahu call it a day after discussing Iran deal

Posted:

Defense Secretary Ash Carter appeared to change no minds among Israeli leaders fiercely opposed to the Iran nuclear deal as he engaged in high-stakes talks aimed at calming allies' fears.


   Israel called it a bad deal. He called it a good deal. And they all just called it a day.


   Carter did avoid a public scolding by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has called the Iran deal a monumental mistake and asserted that it severely weakens Israel's security and strengthens Iran.


   Neither Carter nor Netanyahu commented on Iran in a brief appearance before news cameras and reporters.


   Later, at an air base in Jordan, Carter mentioned that Netanyahu had been blunt behind closed doors. "But friends can disagree," he said.
