Israel's prime minister suggests he'll keep pressing the United States to get tougher on Iran, despite strains with the Obama administration.

Benjamin Netanyahu wants Washington to spell out conditions that would set off a U.S.-led attack on Iranian nuclear facilities. The U.S. refuses to do so but insists Iran must not be allowed to make a nuclear weapon.

Both sides have tried to downplay reports of a rift.

But Netanyahu indicated that he won't halt calls for the U.S. to set "red lines." He told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that he wasn't shy about expressing his views on Israel's security interests.

He says: "When I feel I need to speak out, I do."

Israel and the U.S. fear Iran wants to produce bombs, a charge Tehran denies.
