The tension between Obama and Netanyahu was laid bare in an unusually public manner during an Oval Office meeting in 2011.

In front of a crowd of journalists, the prime minister lectured Obama at length on Israel's history and dismissed the president's conditions for restarting peace talks.

This ziggurat was discovered in 1936, and was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. C., and until 2002, it was the only ziggurat known to have survived in Iran.

Two mounds have been excavated in Jiroft, a town 230 km to the south of Kermna, the capital of the Kerman province.

Apart from the location of Aratta, the age of the ziggurat has also been questioned.

So far, the dating of the monument has been based on two small fragments that may be written inscriptions.

Later that year, a microphone caught Obama telling his then-French counterpart in a private conversation that while he may be fed up with Netanyahu, 'You are sick of him, but I have to work with him every day.'He made his first trip as president to Israel and the two leaders went to great lengths to put on a happy front, referring to each other by their first names and touring some of the region's holy sites together.

The settlement issue has been a persistent thorn in relations, compounded by profound unhappiness in Washington over Israeli military operations in the Sinai, Iraq and Lebanon during the Ford, Reagan and George H.
