With the media brimming with talk of a US go-ahead for an Israeli war on Iran, the Obama administration moves to deny that it has given Israel the “green light” for any such strike.

State Department spokesman Ian Kelly rejected the impression that US Vice President Joe Biden’s earlier remarks could be seen as giving Israel a green light to attack Iran.

Biden said on Sunday that the United States would not stand in the way of Israel if it chose to take military action against the Iranian nuclear program.

In an interview broadcast on ABC, Biden said the US “cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do.”

“Israel can determine for itself – it’s a sovereign nation – what’s in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else,” he added.

The State Department spokesman reacted to the remarks on Monday, saying “I certainly would not want to give a green light to any kind of military action.”
