“Iran needs a deal more than anyone. Instead of making dangerous concessions to Iran, now is the time for the international community to reassert and fortify its original demands for a better deal,” Netanyahu said.
“We must not let Iran, the foremost sponsor of global terrorism, have an easy path to nuclear weapons which will threaten the entire world,” Netanyahu said.
He spoke as US President Barack Obama and US Secretary of State John Kerry continued to publicly advocate for the framework deal agreed upon in Switzerland earlier this month to curb Iran’s nuclear program. The details of the agreement between Iran and the six world powers, including the US, will only be finalized in June.
Obama publicly chided Netanyahu for his continued opposition to the framework agreement when speaking with reporters in Panama on Saturday.
“I have repeatedly asked — what is the alternative that you [Netanyahu] present that you think makes it less likely for Iran to get a nuclear weapon? And I have yet to obtain a good answer on that,” Obama said.
