Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praises tough U.S. sanctions on Iran, saying the financial pressure has sparked protests against the Iranian government across the region, and urged even stronger action against the Tehran government.
Netanyahu spoke shortly before meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Lisbon for talks expected to focus heavily on Iran.
The U.S. sanctions are "creating economic problems, creating political problems," Netanyahu said, adding that there is a "wide spectrum" of options for ratcheting up the pressure on the regime in Tehran.
