Mitt Romney would back unilateral military action by Israel against Iran’s nuclear sites, a senior aide said as the presumptive Republican candidate embarked on a series of high-level meetings in Jerusalem.
“If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision,” Dan Senor, Romney’s senior national security aide, told reporters accompanying the candidate.
Romney arrived in Israel on Saturday evening for a brief visit, during which he will meet the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, and president, Shimon Peres, as well as the Palestinian prime minister, Salam Fayyad. The visit is aimed at reinforcing Romney’s support for Israel and his personal friendship with Netanyahu, and appealing to Jewish voters in the US ahead of November’s presidential contest.
He will also make a speech on Sunday on foreign policy and US-Israeli relations. It is expected to focus on the Iranian nuclear issue and the common interests of Israel and the US.
In comments echoing Netanyahu’s position that a nuclear Iran is the biggest threat to the Jewish people since the Holocaust, Romney will say: “We have seen the horrors of history. We will not stand by. We will not watch them play out again.”
