Netanyahu Says He Will Work With Trump to Fix Bad Iran Deal

By    |   Sunday, 04 December 2016 06:34 PM

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday reiterated his harsh criticism of last year’s international nuclear deal with Iran and said he would work with President-elect Donald Trump on fixing it, The Weekly Standard reported.

Netanyahu, during an address at the Brookings Institution’s annual Saban Forum in Washington, said "I oppose the deal because it doesn't prevent Iran from getting nukes, it paves the way for Iran to get nuclear weapons. I look forward to speaking with [Trump] about what to do about this bad deal."

Trump has called the deal, which was signed in July 2015 between Tehran and six world powers, led by the United States, as "the worst deal ever negotiated."

The Jerusalem Post reports that Netanyahu is already planning for a visit to the White House after Trump invited him. The two last met in September during the prime minister’s trip to New York at the United Nations General Assembly.


When asked whether he would ever take military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities, Netanyahu said “Israel is committed – and when I say we’re committed, we’re committed… We have to stop Iran’s march to the bomb, development of long-range ballistic missiles and support for terrorism around the world.”

Netanyahu stressed that "After the deal was signed, Iran has actually become an even more aggressive power. It's developing ballistic missiles that will ultimately be capable of reaching the United States."

The prime minister's remarks came after Iranian officials criticized the United States when Congress last week overwhelmingly voted, despite the protests of the Obama administration, to extend the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996, which is set to expire on December 31.
