The American administration believes the path proposed by Israel to subdue Iran with sanctions may lead to war and not to a peaceful resolution of the nuclear issue.
State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters: "I think we're looking at multiple tracks here, including our continued pursuit of seeing whether a diplomatic path is possible. The alternative in our view is a path to war. We think the path to diplomacy is the right path." The statement was given following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's post on Twitter, in which he warned against prolonged negotiations with Iran. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
