Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke in the US Congress answering an invitation from the Republican Party. In his speech, he made clear one thing; he found Obama’s initiative to offer dispenses to Iran as something that could threaten the entire world.
In his speech, he said that the US is “paving the way” for Iran’s nuclear bomb. He highlighted that the IS only had “butcher knives” while Iran had a nuclear bomb and intercontinental ballistic missles.
According to Congressman Adam Kinzinger R-Channahon, “Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address reinforced my serious concerns about the direction of ongoing negotiations with Iran,” said Kinzinger, who has been outpsoken about tougher Iranian sanctions. “A compelling case was made as to why we must reject any deal that allows Iran a pathway that could be used to obtain nuclear weapons. It is time for this administration to stop ignoring the growing threats facing the international community and listen to the calls of our allies to demand Iran give up any nuclear enrichment for the long term.”
Republicans had greatly cheered Netanyahu’s speech, but US President Barack Obama said that Netanyahu “did not offer any solution or alternative”.
He said that the US and the world need insight on what is happening inside Iran, which is why the sanctions are needed. To turn a blind eye on Iran for its economic activities is a risk that can endanger the world.
