Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted on Tuesday that Israel will not be bound by the Iran nuclear accord being negotiated in Lausanne, and “will do everything to defend our security and our future.”
Netanyahu, speaking at the ceremonial opening of the 20th Knesset just hours before the Western powers’ self-imposed deadline for reaching a framework deal with Tehran, said that Israel was “not burying its head in the sand.”
“The biggest threat to our security and future was and remains Iran’s attempt to arm with nuclear weapons,” he said.
“The agreement being put together at Lausanne is paving the way for that result.”
