Outgoing Prime Minister Yair Lapid said Sunday that he offered to mediate between Benjamin Netanyahu and the Democratic Party in the United States.
In a closed meeting with JNF UK, Lapid said that he "has a better relationship with the Democrats than Netanyahu, and I offered the new government my help."
Lapid also spoke to members of the philanthropist organization on his plans after he leaves office, and said that he had had long conversations with U.S. President Joe Biden on Iran.
"What I'm trying to do is to achieve a longer and stronger nuclear agreement," he said. "I've talked about this with President Biden, who said that a deal with Iran would not be reached any time soon," Lapid said.
"In 2015, before signing the nuclear agreement, President Barack Obama revealed that the U.S. had bunker-penetrating bombs, which convinced the Iranians to sign the deal," the prime minister said.
"If the Americans can present such a military option again, I'm sure it will help to come up with a longer, stronger agreement. I told Biden that a real military option should be put on the table, but unfortunately, it still has not happened," he said.
