Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu defended his speech to Congress on the issue of Iran on Sunday, suggesting the Obama administration has moved the goalposts in negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear program.

Reports that the United States may offer Arab nations in the Middle East a “nuclear umbrella” – protection from a nuclear-threshold Iran in exchange for guarantees they won’t seek similar technology themselves – “signals a shift in US policy from preventing a nuclear Iran to containing one,” Netanyahu told Face the Nation of CBS News.

“I think there’s a better deal,” he said. “The better deal is to increase the breakout time and limit Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.”.
