Where they stand: Foreign policy

THE BRONX - With less than two months before the November election, foreign policy matters have begun to overshadow issues here at home.

President Obama recently made accusations against China, accusing the country of illegally subsidizing auto parts exports. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has called the move too little, too late and also wants China labeled a currency manipulator, an issue Obama has declined to move upon.

In Iran, President Obama has continued his call for sanctions and negotiations as the proper means to prevent the country from producing nuclear weapons. Romney, however, says that if elected, he will use military action against Iran if sanctions fail to produce results.

When it comes to Israel, the president has called for the country to cease construction of housing settlements in disputed areas and for both sides to begin new peace talks. Romney has said that he will stand with Israel's prime minister and that he will pledge more military assistance for the country.
