President Obama has said the US will "always" work to ensure that Israel is secure.

He made the assertion at a meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, at the White House to discuss their shared concerns about Iran.

The US and Israel accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons, but the two allies have differed over how to respond.
