Netanyahu: Israel will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday (January 14) that Israel will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons and called on Western countries to impose “snapback sanctions” on Tehran.

“We know exactly what is happening with the Iranian nuclear program. Iran thinks it can achieve nuclear weapons. I reiterate: Israel will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said in a video statement. 

“I also call on all the western states to impose the United Nations’ automatic sanction mechanism,” Netanyahu added, after France, Britain and Germany triggered the dispute mechanism in their nuclear deal with Iran. 

The 2015 deal’s dispute mechanism can ultimately lead to a “snapback” – the reimposition of sanctions under previous U.N. resolutions.
