Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged other countries to follow President Donald Trump in imposing sanctions on Iran, CNN reported.

Iran "seeks to conquer the Middle East, it threatens Europe, it threatens the West, it threatens the world. And it offers provocation after provocation," Netanyahu said in London at a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"That's why I welcome President Trump's insistence on new sanctions against Iran," Netanyahu said. "I think other nations should follow suit, certainly responsible nations, and I'd like to talk to you about how we can ensure Iran's aggression does not go unanswered."

Britain agrees with Netanyahu, according to a spokesperson.

"With regard to the specific agreement relating to the nuclear weapons … it's important that it is very carefully and rigorously policed. We should also be clear that it has neutralized the possibility of the Iranians acquiring nuclear weapons for more than a decade,” the spokesperson said, according to CNN.

Netanyahu was an opponent of President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. Last Dec. 4, he said he would discuss with Trump how to repair the deal.

On Saturday, Iran carried out missile tests during a military exercise after Trump imposed sanctions on the country due to a test fire of a ballistic rocket.
