During his March 5 meeting with President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "raised concerns" over a possible deal to build nuclear reactors in Saudi Arabia, according to Axios. Sources told the outlet that Netanyahu “asked Trump not to continue with the deal," and to "insist on a Saudi commitment not to enrich uranium on their soil" if the U.S. decides to move forward with it. Trump’s team reportedly responded that if the U.S. does not sell the reactors to the Saudis, another country like “Russia or France" will. He did not give a final answer to the Israeli leader. Israel's Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz met with his American counterpart Rick Perry—who is negotiating the deal with Saudi Arabia—in Houston on March 6. Perry officially launched the negotiations in London on March 2.
