Netanyahu also welcomed the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and the scheduled move of its embassy from Tel Aviv on 14 May. It is an arms dealer to the Houthi rebels in Yemen.
On Wednesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani waved aside USA and European discussions over changes to the nuclear accord and dismissed Trump as a "tradesman" who lacked the qualifications to deal with a complex global pact.
Two days later the US plans to open its new embassy in Jerusalem, marking a significant shift in decades of American policy toward Israel and the Palestinians, who also claim the holy city as their capital.
Pompeo said in Tel Aviv that "we are incredibly proud" of the decision.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, left, is welcomed by Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, center, as they attend a joint press conference at the Royal Terminal of King Khaled airport, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday.
US President Donald Trump is due to decide on May 12 whether to reimpose nuclear-related sanctions on Tehran, putting in peril the landmark 2015 accord over Iran's nuclear programme. "I will discuss with him developments in the region, Iran's growing aggression and of course the nuclear agreement with Iran, about which there will be a decision soon".
In Riyadh, Pompeo said Iran "destabilizes this entire region" and he also urged the Saudis and their neighbors to resolve a festering dispute with Qatar.

And they have no desire to actually upend a system that - by their own report - is so flawed that it may implode at any moment. Now that we've established a baseline, the problem is finding a way to fix it under the umbrella of the current system.
During the press conference, Jubeir said, "Iran should be dealt with by imposing further sanctions for its violations of global laws relating to ballistic missiles".
After Saudi Arabia, Pompeo goes to Israel and Jordan.
The controversial move has triggered a strong Palestinian condemnation and a new wave of violence between Israel and the Palestinians.
The next day the Palestinians will mark the anniversary of what they term the "catastrophe", when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were driven from their homes during the 1948 war that surrounded Israel's creation.
"Absent a substantial fix, absent overcoming the shortcomings, the flaws of the deal, he is unlikely to stay in that deal past this May", Pompeo said. Dozens of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during recent violent protests along border between Israel and Gaza.
The whirlwind trip to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in Brussels and to Middle East allies came only hours after Pompeo was confirmed as Trump's top diplomat.
The Trump administration has backed Israel amid growing tensions with Iran.
Pompeo is the highest ranking USA official to meet with the North Korean dictator.
