In his sharpest criticism yet, Netanyahu says world powers “have given up” on stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons in ongoing negotiations.
Netanyahu makes the comments at a meeting of his Likud Party outside of Jerusalem. They come as Netanyahu plans to address the US Congress on the nuclear negotiations.
The West fears Iran could build an atomic bomb with its nuclear program. Iran says its program is for peaceful purposes.
Netanyahu says: “From the agreement that is forming it appears that they (world powers) have given up on that commitment and are accepting that Iran will gradually, within a few years, develop capabilities to produce material for many nuclear weapons. They might accept this but I am not willing to accept this.”
