US President Barack Obama spoke by phone with Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu Friday to discuss continued nuclear negotiations with Iran.

The two leaders discussed the US' "ongoing efforts to advance a peaceful resolution of the international community’s concerns over Iran's nuclear program.  The President provided the Prime Minister with an update on negotiations in Geneva and underscored his strong commitment to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, which is the aim of the ongoing negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran.”

The call follows pointed criticism of the  nuclear negotiations from Netanyahu Friday, in which he said Iran “wanted relief of sanctions after years of grueling sanctions, they got that. They paid nothing because they are not reducing in any way their nuclear enrichment capability. So Iran got the deal of the century, and the international community got a bad deal.”

During the call, the two leaders “agreed to continue to stay in touch on this issue."
