“The world must join the U.S. in sanctioning Iran for this belligerent behavior,” said Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon. “It can never be allowed to acquire nuclear capabilities.”
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called for the international community to sanction Iran in response to the International Atomic Energy Agency announcing on Monday that the regime exceeded the uranium enrichment limit under the 2015 nuclear deal.
Danon said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “revealed last year that Iran never intended to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. Now, the regime just demonstrated it by enriching over [600 pounds] of uranium,” referring to the maximum of low-enriched uranium allowed under the agreement.
In April 2018, Netanyahu revealed that Israel had secretly obtained tens of thousands of pieces of documentation apparently demonstrating that “Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear-weapons program. The files prove that.”
