Netanyahu: Iran’s uranium enrichment proves it is seeking nuclear weapons

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Iran’s move to enrich uranium to 20 percent purity in violation of the 2015 nuclear deal he opposed proves it is working toward nuclear weapons.

“Iran’s decision to continue violating its obligations, raise enrichment and promote industrial uranium enrichment capabilities underground cannot be explained in any way, other than a desire to continue realizing its goal of developing a military nuclear program,” the prime minister tweets.

“Israel will not allow Iran to manufacture nuclear weapons.”
