Israel Calls Iranian President’s Nuclear Comments Deceptive


netanyahu1Israel said on Thursday a U.S. television interview in which Iranian President Rouhani pledged that Tehran would never develop nuclear weapons was an Iranian attempt to deceive the world.

“One must not be fooled by the Iranian president’s fraudulent words,” said a statement issued by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office. “The Iranians are spinning in the media so that the centrifuges can keep on spinning.”

The Israeli statement said Iran was out to achieve a deal in which it would agree to give up an “inconsequential” part of its nuclear program while moving ahead with other activities that would enable it to build a bomb quickly from the moment it decides to do so.
