Netanyahu talks Syria, Iran with congressional delegation


WASHINGTON (JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with a U.S. congressional delegation and discussed the prospect of an Iran with a nuclear weapon and the dangers posed by chemical weapons in Syria.

Netanyahu met last Friday with a bipartisan delegation led by Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), Netanyahu’s office said. It did not say who else was in the delegation.

The fate of Syria’s chemical weapons during the turmoil in that country has concerned Israeli and U.S. leaders.
