Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the United Nations General Assembly that the world must fix or nix the Iran nuclear deal.
“Iran vows to destroy my country every day,” Netanyahu said hours after praising US President Donald Trump’s speech as the most courageous speech he has heard in his 30-plus years at the UN.
Netanyahu said the world must fix or nix the Iran nuclear deal, saying that “I know there are those who still defend the Iran nuclear deal.”
He said that “this is exactly what they said about the deal with North Korea.”
“We must stop Iran’s development of ballistic missiles and stop its actions in the region,” Netanyahu said. “I have a simple message for the Iranian dictator Ayatollah Khamenei – the light of Israel will never be extinguished.” Netanyahu added that “those who threaten us with annihilation put themselves in peril.”
Netanyahu said that “as long as Iran seeks the destruction of Israel, it will not have a worse enemy than Israel,” but said “I have a message to the Iranian people – we are your friends,” repeating himself in Farsi.
