US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today met with Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
The meeting is the second leg of a foreign trip aimed at bolstering his foreign policy credentials in his race to unseat President Barack Obama in the US presidential election.
Shortly before those talks, Romney's senior national security aide, Dan Senor, told reporters travelling with the candidate:
"If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision."
