This week, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is on a historical trip to South America, but the security of his nation is never far from his mind. The Times of Israel's Raphael Ahren reports that Netanyahu spoke out against the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, rejecting rumors that Israel is satisfied with the questionable agreement:
Israel wants the Iran nuclear deal to be amended or canceled altogether, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday.
Delivering statements to the press alongside Argentine President Mauricio Macri, Netanyahu rejected recent reports claiming that Israel and Saudi Arabia are no longer interested in scrapping the landmark deal, which was reached between Iran and six world powers in 2015 and aimed to end Iran’s nuclear weapons development program.
“In the case of Iran, there have been some news stories about Israel’s purported position on the nuclear deal with Iran. So let me take this opportunity and clarify: Our position is straightforward. This is a bad deal. Either fix it — or cancel it. This is Israel’s position,” said Netanyahu.
