Netanyahu’s statement comes after he convened a strategic meeting which included Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi, and Mossad chief Yossi Cohen to discuss the Biden administration’s willingness to negotiate with Iran on the nuclear deal.
Israel is not going to rely on the Iran nuclear agreement and will “do everything” to prevent Iran's leadership getting hold of nuclear weapons, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.
“Israel isn’t pinning its hopes on an agreement with an extremist regime like [Iran's]. We already saw what these agreements are worth… with North Korea,” Netanyahu said at a memorial service for the 1920 Battle of Tel Hai.
“With or without an agreement, we will do everything so [Iran isn’t] armed with nuclear weapons,” the Prime Minister said.
