Gantz vows to take ‘whatever measures necessary’ to stop Iran from getting new arms

Defense Minister Benny Gantz says he will take “whatever measures necessary” to prevent Iran from acquiring new weapons as a United Nations arms embargo against the country comes to an end, following a failed American bid to extend it.

“With the expiration of the arms embargo on Iran today, we must be stronger and more determined than ever. Iran has never been an Israeli problem, but, first and foremost, a global and regional problem,” Gantz says in a statement.

“As defense minister, I will continue to take whatever measures necessary, together with our partners, old and new, to prevent Iranian expansion and armament. All countries should get on board this important effort,” he says.
