Israeli PM vows not to allow Iran to acquire Nuclear weapon

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed on Wednesday not to allow Iran to acquire nuclear arms after the Islamic republic said it would abondon on its nuclear activities agreed in a 2015 deal.

“This morning on my way here I heard that Iran intends to continue its nuclear programme,” Netanyahu said at a ceremony on Israel's annual day of remembrance for its fallen soldiers and civilian victims of militant attacks.

“We shall not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon,” he said in Hebrew.

Netanyahu has been an outspoken opponent of Iran's landmark nuclear deal with major powers and was the leading supporter of United States President Donald Trump's decision to worfdraw from it and reimpose crippling economic sanctions last year. -APP/AFP
