Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has gently pushed back at the inference that his government does not know the details of a proposed agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, after the State Department confirmed that it is not sharing everything about the negotiations with the Israelis.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is relentlessly pursuing nuclear weapons with the express purpose of destroying the state of Israel,” Netanyahu told visiting U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-Ga.).
“The P5+1’s latest proposal won’t stop them,” he continued, referring to the group of U.N. Security Council permanent members and Germany which is negotiating a deal with Tehran.
“The Iranians of course know the details of that proposal and Israel does too. So when we say that the current proposal would lead to a bad deal, a dangerous deal, we know what we’re talking about.”
