Israel said on Monday it was probable that world powers and Iran would agree to a “bad deal” on Tehran’s nuclear program. “We think it’s going to be a bad, insufficient deal,” said Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz. “In this (accord) you are getting a robust and complicated deal that enables Iran to preserve capabilities and allows it to remain a threshold nuclear state.”
Israel believed the current deal, which would allow 6,000 centrifuges, would enable Iran to “dash to the bomb” within nine to ten months because its nuclear infrastructure would not be dismantled. “We cannot keep quiet when our national security is at stake,” Steinitz said.
