Prime Minister Netanyahu's Remarks At the Weekly Cabinet Meeting (Excerpts)

February 16, 2014

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear


The major powers' talks with Iran will resume this week. Until now, it must be said, it is Iran that has gained without giving anything significant. It has received a major easing of sanctions and the Iranian economy is already responding appropriately.

Iran is also continuing its aggressive policy both inside Iran and outside Iran. Inside Iran, it is executing innocent people. Outside Iran, it supports the continued killings by the Syrian regime, which would be unable to act without it, without its support. Iran is also continuing to arm terrorist organizations with advanced, deadly weapons and, of course, it is continuing to call for the destruction of the State of Israel. At the same time, Iran is continuing with advanced research and development of centrifuges. Iran is not prepared to concede even one centrifuge.

Israel's policy is clear and is active on two tracks: First, to expose Iran's unchanging aggressive policy. Second, to demand the dismantling of Iran's enrichment capacity. Iran does not need any centrifuges for nuclear power for civilian purposes.
