TEL AVIV, February 9. /TASS/. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans raising the issues of the Iranian threat when he has the first meeting with the new U.S. President, Donald Trump, on February 15 in Washington, the Israeli Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, Ze'ev Elkin said in an interview with TASS on Thursday.
"I think the discussions (in Washington) will embrace the whole spectrum of both bilateral and regional issues," Elkin said. "The Prime Minister will take up the problem of the Iranian threat."
He recalleed that Israel viewed the multilateral agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, in connection with which the international community lifted sanctions from Iran, as an extremely dangerous document.
"You know our stance on the agreement with Iran," Elkin said. "Israel sizes it up as a really dangerous document. It leaves loopholes that could help Iran get access to nuclear weapons within just a few months."
"In all likelihood, Trump and Netanyahu will discuss the missile tests conducted by Iran and the support to terror Iran gives across the region," he said. "Concerns over the stepping-up of Iranian activities are not typical of Israel only. They exist in many Arab countries in the region, and the U.S. President and members of his Administration have voiced them, too."
Elkin pointed out the importance of the first-ever talks between Netanyahu and Trump after the latter man was elected U.S. President.
"This will really be an important meeting, the first official meeting of both leaders after Trump's election for the Presidential Office," he said.
