Netanyahu to suggest nullification of Iranian nuclear deal to Trump

Netanyahu's trip marked the first visit to Mexico by a sitting Israeli prime minister, Pena Nieto said.

On Friday evening, the prime minister hosted Shabbat dinner for invited guests at the hotel.

US President Donald Trump reportedly will not focus on peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis during his upcoming meetings with leaders from both sides on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly next week, the Times of Israel reported Saturday.

Netanyahu is visiting Manhattan for the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, which concludes on September 25.

The two men are expected to discuss the issue of Iran's presence on Israel's northern border, as well as the looming deadline for Trump's signature to re-approve or cancel the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran.

Netanyahu is not planning to simply warn of the dangers, but rather present a program that will prevent Iran from turning into a nuclear power. On Tuesday he told reporters the Iranians "have a terror machine ... operating terror cells in many continents", adding that Tehran's "quest for nuclear weapons" is a major concern, one that should worry "the entire worldwide community".

Netanyahu told reporters at his NY hotel on Friday evening that "the central message [of the UNGA speech] will be that Israel will not tolerate an Iranian military presence on our northern borders, which endangers not just us, but also our Arab neighbors", the Times of Israel reported.
