Amid the Biden administration’s intention to return to the Iran Nuclear Deal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a serious warning considering Iran’s nuclear agenda.
With the Trump administration coming to its conclusion over the next two weeks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu extended his thanks to the 45th president for his many accomplishments in the last four years, especially in the Middle East. However, he also issued another warning to the incoming Biden administration regarding its conditional commitment to returning the Iran Nuclear Deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The 2015 JCPOA was implemented under the Obama administration, proving to do nothing but further enable the Iranian regime to build its nuclear arsenal. The incoming Biden administration has reportedly committed to going back to the deal if the Islamic Republic agrees to stop exceeding several of the limits originally agreed upon (i.e., uranium enrichment rate, total amount of enriched uranium, etc.).
The day after all of the bizarre events took place on Capitol Hill this week, Netanyahu thanked Trump, citing only a few of his administration’s accomplishments in the Middle East regarding Israel and Arab nations. He said, “I want to thank President Trump and all of you in the administration for all you have done and are doing for peace. You’ve made a real difference, achieving one breakthrough after another, bringing the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan into the circle of peace. I have no doubt that more Arab and Muslim countries will follow.”
As for his warning for the US not to return to the JCPOA, Netanyahu praised the Trump administration’s ‘maximum pressure’ campaign. He said that it “must be continued to prevent Iran from continuing its campaign of aggression and terror throughout the region and to prevent Iran from rushing to a nuclear arsenal.”
The Prime Minister has vowed on numerous occasions that Israel will not let Iran acquire a nuclear weapon.
