Netanyahu tells international community to not be "tempted" by Iran's diplomacy
Israel’s prime minister said Friday that the international community must not be “tempted” by Iran’s new diplomatic push and lift sanctions imposed over its controversial nuclear program.
Benjamin Netanyahu said sanctions should not be reduced “as long as the Iranians don’t dismantle their military nuclear program” as he arrived back in Israel from the United States where Iran was the main topic in talks with President Barack Obama and his address at the U.N.
“The world must not be fooled by the Iranian ploy into easing the sanctions,” Netanyahu said, adding he would be meeting next week with European leaders on Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani has taken a softer tone toward the West in an outreach that Israel dismisses as a trick aimed at removing crippling economic sanctions against Tehran.
