Israeli official says summit a signal to Iran

SINGAPORE (AP) — An Israeli Cabinet minister says the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was important for the Middle East.

Yuval Steinitz tells The Associated Press that North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons would send a “strong” signal to Iran. He says it would “increase the pressure on Iran” to give up its nuclear infrastructure and capabilities.

Israel has staunchly opposed the deal between Iran and world powers meant to curb its nuclear program, which the U.S. withdrew from last month.
