Netanyahu: Trump Iran Move 'Very Brave Decision'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed President Donald Trump for making a “very brave decision” to press for changes in the Iran nuclear deal — and called on European allies to join the effort.

In an interview aired Sunday on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Netanyahu, a longtime critic of the pact with Iran, declared “we cannot allow this rogue regime 30 times the size of North Korea’s economy to have a nuclear arsenal.”

“It's a very brave decision, and I think it's the right decision for the world,” he said.

Netanyahu noted America’s European allies “say that they want to keep the deal — and the president said correctly, ‘Either fix it or nix it. Either change it or cancel it.’”

“If they want to save the deal, then the European allies should start working with the United States to actually correct its deficiencies,” he said, calling the Iranian deal “dangerous for them no less than it is for others.”

The Israeli leader noted key Arab states like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates also support Trump’s move to toughen the pact.

“And I suggest that, you know, when Israel and the key Arab states agree on something, you know, you should pay attention,” he said. “We're close with our ears to the ground. We live right here next to Iran. We see what it's doing. And I think that what the president has done is created now space to prevent a very bad deal from materializing and to fix it. Everybody should join forces in doing just that.”
