Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said that the framework deal reached between p5+1 nations and Iran last Thursday “keeps Iran’s vast nuclear infrastructure in place,” in an interview on the CNN news network Sunday.
“Thousands of centrifuges will keep spinning, enriching uranium, that’s a very bad deal,” Netanyahu said. “They’re getting a free path to the bomb,” he added.
In addition, Netanyahu warned that the issue of Iran’s inter-continental ballistic missile system (ICBM) was not negotiated as part of the deal, “and those missiles are only used for you [the US]. They’re not missiles that can reach us. And they’re geared for nuclear weapons.”
“I think there’s a third alternative and that is standing firm, ratcheting up the pressure until we get a better deal…it’s achievable,” particularly with the use of very strong sanctions, Netanyahu said.
