PM: ‘Message from Lausanne: Aggression is rewarded’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says “the deal taking shape in Lausanne sends a message that there is no price to pay for aggression, even the opposite — Iran’s aggression will be rewarded. The moderate and responsible countries in the region, with Israel at the helm but also many other countries, will be the first to be hurt by such an agreement.

“It is incomprehensible how forces supported by Iran continue to conquer more and more land, and in Lausanne they close their eyes to this aggression,” Netanyahu adds.

He is referring to the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 states, which have been taking place in Lausanne, Switzerland, for the past week and a half; and to the war in Yemen by the Houthis, a subsect of Shiite Islam, against the country’s Sunni president and government.

Iran, the world’s most powerful Shiite nation, has been tacitly supporting the Houthi rebels.
