With all the back and forth between the USA and Iran over a renewal of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the world, it appears that America is about sign an official agreement with Iran allowing it to move forward with its nuclear program.
Caretaker Prime Minister Yair Lapid made it clear to France’s President Emmanuel Macron that Israel is not bound by the nuclear deal.
“The Prime Minister made clear to the President that Israel opposes a return to the deal and would not be obligated by such an agreement,” the PM’s office said on Monday in a statement, adding that the country “will continue to do everything to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear capability”.
For his part Alternative Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said the following:
‘’This agreement will send approximately a quarter of a trillion dollars to the Iranian terror administration’s pocket and to its regional proxies, and will enable Iran to develop, install and operate centrifuges, with almost no restrictions, in a mere two years,’’ he said in a statement.
‘’Throughout the past year, even when it was very close, we successfully convinced our White House counterparts not to give in to Iranian demands. I hope this will remain the case,’’ Bennett added.
