Obama: Words From Iran Not Sufficient

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says words are not sufficient for Iran to resolve concerns about its nuclear program.
    
Obama says the U.S. is entering negotiations with Iran clear-eyed. He says Iran seems ready to negotiate, but diplomacy must be tested. He says the U.S. isn't taking any options off the table, including military action.
    
Obama spoke during an Oval Office meeting Monday with visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The meeting comes just days after Obama's historic phone call with new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
    
Netanyahu has been warning the U.S. against equating Rouhani's more moderate rhetoric with substantive changes in Iran's nuclear policy.
    
Obama is also thanking Netanyahu for entering into "good faith" peace negotiations with Palestinians. But he says there's limited time to reach an accord.
