U.S. President Barack Obama said Monday that the U.S. commitment to Israel was" solid rock " by receiving the Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the White House to discuss the sensitive issue of Iran's nuclear program. In this respect, Barack Obama has assured that diplomacy still had a chance in Iran, countries that Westerners suspectedof wanting to develop nuclear weapons and Israel has threatened to attack unilaterally in a "preventive" in recent weeks .

Links "between our two countries are permanent," said the U.S. president told reportersat the start of his meeting with Netanyahu. He renewed assurances to the Jewish stateissued the day before in Washington during his speech to the powerful pro-Israel organization AIPAC. "Our commitment to Israel's security is solid rock ," he said. "We think there is still a chance for a diplomatic resolution of this issue", but Obama said."We all know that is unacceptable from an Israeli point of view to have a country withnuclear weapons, which calls for the destruction of Israel," said Bush. "I reserve all options.
