Prime Minister Netanyahu responded to Iran’s Supreme Ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s remarks Saturday, in which he confirmed that the nuclear deal made with world powers does not stop Iran from its pursuit in developing nuclear arms, as well as his vow to continue supporting terrorist regimes in the region.

Speaking in his weekly Sunday cabinet meeting, Netanyahu stated that “If anyone thought that excessive concessions to Iran would lead it to change its policies, they received a decisive answer this weekend with the aggressive and adversarial speech by Iran’s leader Khamenei” adding that, “the Iranians are not even trying to hide the fact that they will use the hundreds of millions that they will get from this deal in order to arm their terror machine, and they say outright that they will continue their fight against the United States and its allies, Israel being chief among them.”

Netanyahu emphasized the danger of the final deal as it is currently being reviewed for approval by the United States’ Congress. He warned that Iran “said categorically that they will continue their struggle against the United States and its allies, and first among them of course Israel….The deal that was signed paves the way for Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons, perhaps in a decade, if Iran decides to honor the agreement, and much sooner if it decides to violate it, as it tends to do.”
