US President Barack Obama said in an Israeli TV interview broadcast on Thursday it is highly unlikely the Jewish State would surprise Washington with an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

“It is unacceptable for Iran to posses nuclear weapons and we are going to do everything we can to prevent that happening,” Obama said told Israel’s Channel 2 television in an interview taped on Wednesday.

“Neither of us try to surprise each other,” he said, responding to a question if he was concerned Israel would surprise the US with an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
