Nuclear-armed Israeli President Shimon Peres said on Thursday he trusts U.S. President Barack Obama's pledge to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, in comments that appeared to caution against unilateral Israeli military action.
Iran always points to what it calls "hypocrisy" of international actors over its nuclear programme it maintains peaceful, referring to nuclear-armed Israel in the same region that most experts estimate that it has at least between 100 and 200 nuclear warheads and often threatens the Islamic republic with an attack.
"I am convinced this is an American interest. I am convinced (Obama) recognises the American interest and he isn't saying this just to keep us happy. I have no doubt about it, after having had talks with him," Peres told Israel's Channel Two television.
"Now, it's clear to us that we can't do it alone. We can delay (Iran's nuclear programme). It's clear to us we have to proceed together with America. There are questions about coordination and timing, but as serious as the danger is, this time at least we are not alone.
