Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country will continue the “fight” to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.
He said this during a memorial service for the victims of the Holocaust.
Referring to his recent visit to Berlin, Netanyahu said that since Nazi Germany “the world has changed, but the calls for our destruction have not stopped, and today they are being issued by the regime in Tehran.”
“We strongly oppose any nuclear agreements with Iran that open the way for it to possess nuclear weapons,” he said in a speech on the eve of the Holocaust memorial.
Negotiations aimed at resurrecting a landmark 2015 deal between Tehran, the UK, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, have stalled and stalled since last year.
The United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018 under President Donald Trump and reimposed sanctions on Iran, prompting Tehran to phase out its commitments.
A February report from the International Atomic Energy Agency indicated that it had found particles of uranium enriched to 83.7%, or just under the 90% required to make an atomic bomb, at a plant in Fordow, 100 kilometers south of the capital Tehran.
Iran denied that it was seeking to acquire a nuclear weapon, stressing that it had never attempted to enrich uranium by more than 60%.
