Netanyahu: We will do our best to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions

PNN / Bethlehem

The nuclear agreement signed today in Vienna between Iran and the the five key world powers, in addition to Germany,  has sparked rage and fear among the Israeli leadership, who widely considered it a “threat to the region” and “a bad mistake beyond historic proportions.”

An Israeli high-level politician following the deal said that Israel received a copy of the agreement, and confirmed that Israeli experts will examine and analyze it, since they claimed it was very “complex.”

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Tzipi Hotovely said that the consequences of the agreement for the foreseeable future are considered to be “extremely dangerous,” especially if Iran continues to run its scattered cells, and gather support among the Middle East and ultimately develop a nuclear state.

Hotovely confirmed that Israel will use all of its diplomatic means to prevent an implementation of the agreement.

In a statement made to PressTV, the Israeli Minister of Culture, Miri Regev stressed that Israel still has options. However, she said that the agreement is a threat to the world, indicating that a nuclear Iran would be a disaster for humanity.

Additionally, Regev noted that the agreement, signed in Vienna, will have an effect on neighboring Arab states.

In turn, MK Ofir Akunis from the right-wing Likud party, threatened that the agreement will not be implemented as long as Iran continues to develop its nuclear program, which he claimed “poses a threat to peace throughout the world.”

Akunis ensured that among all of the hugs and smiles witnessed in Vienna today, tomorrow will bring anxiety, fear and a lack of security for all states in the Middle East and the signatory countries to the agreement.

Akunis called the agreement unfortunate, adding that the international community has not learned from past mistakes, but continues to repeat them.

Shortly before the agreement was signed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed that it was “a bad mistake of historic proportions,” pledging that he would do all he could to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

At the beginning of his meeting with the Dutch Foreign Minister in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said that before noon today Iran will thank the agreement for the billions of dollars it will receive which will enable the country to continue its aggression in the region and rest of the world.
