Israeli President says, “Iran’s nuclear deal a ‘lie'”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opened his speech before the UN General Assembly on Thursday by assailing the 2015 Iran nuclear deal as a “fundamental lie” and accusing Tehran of concealing materials to develop a weapons programme.

“We opposed it because it threatens our future, even our very survival. We opposed it because the deal was based on a fundamental lie that Iran is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons,” he said.

Netanyahu then repeated his allegations that Iran continues to pursue its nuclear weapons programme, based on the documents that Israel stole from a government warehouse in Tehran in February.

He also criticised UN nuclear inspectors for not carrying out more inspections on an alleged “secret atomic warehouse” that Iran continues to hide from the public.

“The reason Iran did not destroy its atomic archive and its atomic warehouse is because it hasn’t abandoned its goal to develop nuclear weapons,” he said.

“Israel will never let a regime that calls for our destruction to develop nuclear weapons,” he said while accusing European signatories of the nuclear deal of “appeasing” Iran.
