Romney Would 'Respect' Israeli Strike On Iran
US presidential contender Mitt Romney is visiting the Middle East, promising closer ties with Israel if elected.
During a trip to Jerusalem, Romney’s senior national security aide Dan Senor told reporters that: "If Israel has to take action on its own in order to stop Iran from developing that (nuclear) capability, the governor would respect that decision."
The White House candidate has been holding talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres.
Mr Romney is also due to meet with Israeli opposition politicians and Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, but he will not meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
President Barack Obama has sought to dissuade Israel from a unilateral attack on Iran to allow time for tough sanctions to take a toll on the Islamic Republic's economy and further isolate the country.
