LAST UPDATED: 07/29/2012 14:48

Netanyahu emphasizes the importance of a credible military threat against Iran's nuclear program in meeting with US Republican presidential candidate; Romney meets Peres, Mofaz; still to meet Fayyad.

Opposition Leader Shaul Mofaz told Romney that non-military options on Iran have not yet run their course, but emphasized that "cooperation between Israel and the United States is more important than ever."

"We have to be ready for all options on Iran, but the time for military operations has not yet come," Mofaz told Romney. "This is a time to tighten the sanctions on the Iranian regime and be ready for any development which we should handle in full coordination."

In an implicit compliment to US President Barack Obama, Mofaz said that the American administration was committed on the issue.

The two also spoke about the need for Israel to mend ties with Turkey, and the importance of returning to the negotiating table with the Palestinians.
