JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is concerned about the direction the world’s negotiations with Iran are going, and warned of the danger of the Islamic Republic becoming a nuclear threshold state, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“We are standing before the danger of an agreement [between the world powers and Iran] that will leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, with thousands of centrifuges through which Iran can manufacture the material for a nuclear bomb within a short period of time,” he said at the naming of Road No. 9 into Jerusalem near Motza after former prime minister Yitzhak Shamir.
“This is a threat to the entire world, first and foremost to Israel, and it is much worse than the threat of Islamic State,” he said.
His comments come against the backdrop of reports reaching Jerusalem that the US was willing to accept an agreement with Iran that – according to Channel 2 – would allow it to retain some 5,000 centrifuges. — [wp_colorbox_media url=”http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Netanyahu-warns-world-powers-A-nuclear-threshold-Iran-is-a-bigger-threat-than-ISIS-379211″ type=”iframe” hyperlink=”Source”]
