“Obama rejects Iran deadline, outlines Iran timetable”

“Obama rejects Iran deadline, outlines Iran timetable”
May 18, 2009
     In a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US President Barack Obama declined setting a firm timeline for talks with Iran but added that progress would be assessed at the end of the year (Agence France-Presse). There is a contrast in the headlines regarding Obama’s comments, with the Jerusalem Post reporting that Obama “rejects Iran deadline” and the New York Times stating that Obama “has an Iran timetable.”
     The Jerusalem Post reports that while both leaders affirmed their opposition to a nuclear-armed Iran, Obama remains insistent for a two-state solution for the Palestinian issue (Jerusalem Post). According to the New York Times, independent analysts believe Netanyahu succeeded in emphasizing the Iranian issue over Obama’s calls for a two-state solution (New York Times).
