Prime Minister Netanyahu slammed Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Zarif for saying that Israel wants to destroy Iran. It is Iran that wants to destroy Israel!
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned Monday that Tehran will not remain passive in response to what it says are “threats from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to destroy Iran.”
Netanyahu: “Zarif is lying again. Iran is the one that openly threatens, every day, to destroy the State of Israel. Iran continues to entrench itself militarily in Syria. And today, the IAEA reports that Iran is accelerating its nuclear program.”
“I repeat: Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons that threaten our existence and endanger the entire world.
Iran Continues to Develop Nuclear Capabilities
On Monday, the nuclear watchdog’s chief confirmed that Iran had increased its production rate of enriched uranium, which goes against the Iran deal. But Mr Amano declined to specify by how much and said it was not clear when the stockpile limit would be exceeded.
“As I have constantly emphasised, the nuclear-related commitments entered into by Iran under the [deal] represent a significant gain for nuclear verification,” he said. “I therefore hope that ways can be found to reduce current tensions through dialogue.”
