Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday denounced as "dangerous" a nuclear accord that world powers are negotiating with Iran, saying it goes beyond what his government had feared. "The dangerous accord which is being negotiated in Lausanne (Switzerland) confirms our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu said in remarks at a meeting of his cabinet broadcast on public radio. The premier warned that Iran could be in a position to "conquer" the Middle East through what he called the "axis" of control it has over the capitals of Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. Netanyahu angered the White House when he addressed a joint session of the Congress to warn against a nuclear deal with Iran in the lead-up to Israel's March 17 general election.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Sunday said it was "absolutely not" a mistake to sign the state law that supporters contend promotes religious freedom but detractors see as a covert move to support discrimination against gay people. "There has been shameless rhetoric about my state, about this law, and about its intention all over the Internet," Pence said, speaking on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos. "This isn't about disputes about individuals," he said. (Reporting by Alina Selyukh and Sarah N. Lynch; editing by Susan Thomas)
