Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday evening 9 Kislev 5774, made the following remarks at the Bloomberg Fuel Choices Summit.
“Israel prefers the diplomatic option over any other option. But we want a genuine diplomatic solution that dismantles Iran’s military nuclear capabilities. The proposal that was put on the table, the details of which we are familiar with, is a bad deal. It leaves Iran with nuclear capabilities for military objectives, and provides it with a significant easing of sanctions. The additional danger is that it gives Iran legitimacy to be a nuclear threshold state. That goes against the interest of the international community.
“With every passing day, Iran is under growing economic pressure. One need not be hasty to conclude a bad deal. The time that has been achieved must be utilized for a good deal which dismantles Iran’s military nuclear capabilities. The date for achieving such a deal is the date on which such a deal will be achieved.”
