UN NetnayahuAddressing the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphasised that Israel will counter Iran’s continuing aggression towards the Jewish State.

Calling for the nuclear deal with Iran to be changed or cancelled, he explained that when the deal expires after ten years, “Iran will then be free to enrich uranium on an industrial scale, placing it on the threshold of a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons”.

He added: “Iran vows to destroy my country every day, including by its chief of staff the other day. Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East and Iran is developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world”.

Netanyahu praised US President Trump’s speech to the UN, given earlier yesterday. In his speech, the American President strongly criticised the Iran nuclear deal and said: “We cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear programme”.

President Trump added: “The Iran deal is one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the US has ever entered into to. Frankly, that deal was an embarrassment to the US”.
