White House downplays Iranian official's 'flip-flop' charge

Post  fshnski on Tue Oct 01, 2013 6:04 pm

White House spokesman Jay Carney downplayed any new tension between Iran and the U.S. after President Obama's meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday.

On Monday evening Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif took to Twitter to accuse Obama of imposing illegal sanctions and of doing a “flip flop” on his willingness to engage in talks about containing Tehran's nuclear program.

“Pres. Obama's presumption that Iran is negotiating because of his illegal threats and sanctions is disrespectful of a nation, macho and wrong,” Zarif tweeted.

“President Obama needs consistency to promote mutual confidence. Flip flop destroys trust and undermines US credibility,” he wrote in a second tweet.

Zarif’s comments came after Obama and Netanyahu met Monday and touted crippling international sanctions against Iran, saying they had helped bring Tehran to the negotiating table.

I watched Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu give his speech to the UN. I thought he presented himself well and made some very good common sense points.
