Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak on Monday (April 30) on a "significant development" on the Iran nuclear deal, his office said, as the White House considers whether to pull out of the landmark accord that Israel opposes.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exhibits the place Iran moved its nuclear weapons recordsdata to a location in Tehran after signing the nuclear deal.
Macron has earlier proposed an additional deal that extends Iran's nuclear restrictions.
The argument seems to be "Yeah, we knew the Iranians were lying, and we made a deal with them anyway".
Israel's prime minister says his government has obtained "half a ton" of secret Iranian documents proving the Tehran government once had a nuclear weapons program.
"Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons program", he continued.
One prominent Israeli military analyst said on Monday that Netanyahu's presentation had broken "the false Iranian narrative of nuclear innocence".
But the current USA president has consistently attacked the deal, terming it the "worse deal ever".
"Strong cooperation with close allies like Israel is critical to our efforts to counter Iran's destabilising and malign activities through the Middle East, and indeed, throughout the world".
Mr Trump today met with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari for the first time since his controversial comments on "s***hole" African countries.
Netanyahu said he is certain that Trump will "do the right thing", in deciding whether to stay in the nuclear deal - "The right thing for the United States".
"I'm not telling you what I'm doing, but that doesn't mean I won't negotiate a new deal". But he says if the USA does pull out, he still may negotiate a "real agreement".

Israel sees Iran's nuclear program as an existential threat, and Netanyahu went to the U.S. Congress to give a controversial speech against the signature foreign-policy initiative of then-President Barack Obama.
Under the deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran is committed to slashing the number of its centrifuges, which are machines used to enrich uranium.
The bromance between Trump and Macron was blatantly obvious, and it seems that Trump might have wooed the Frenchman over to his side.
Mr Pompeo reinforced threats made by Donald Trump that the United States would pull out of the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal unless discussions with European allies yielded significant improvements to ensure that Iran never possesses nuclear weapons.
Israel and Iran are arch-enemies, and Israel has mentioned repeatedly it could not permit Iran to ascertain a everlasting army presence in Syria. Days earlier, Macron told German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May that he urged the USA during a trip to Washington last week to stay in the deal and integrate it in a larger framework, rather than walk away.
