Tensions between Israel and the United States over how to deal with Iran's nuclear program bubbled to the surface Monday, as Washington rebuffed calls for it to declare "red lines".

Both Washington and Israel say they are determined to stop Iran developing nuclear arms, but Iran continues to defy international pressure, and there are increasing signs of disagreement over tactics and timetables.

US President Barack Obama has made preventing weapons proliferation the centerpiece of his foreign policy, and has pledged that the United States will prevent Iran joining the nuclear club.

But Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who regards the alleged Iranian bomb program as an existential threat to his country, fears Tehran may be on the brink of nuclear "break-out capacity."
