Gantz to press US over emerging Iran deal
Defense Minister Benny Gantz says he will present Israel’s opposition to the emerging Iran deal when he travels to the US tomorrow.
Gantz says the visit is “aimed at conveying a clear message regarding the negotiations between the powers and Iran on the nuclear agreement: An agreement that does not set back Iran’s capabilities by several years and keep it limited for many years to come — is an agreement that will harm global and regional security,” Gantz says.
“Iran’s rush toward a nuclear (weapon) must be significantly pushed back,” Gantz says.
“We will discuss the issue with the Americans, and at the same time, Israel will continue to build its strength and capabilities — so that in any situation, it will know how to defend itself,” the defense minister says.
