Netanyahu: Nuke Deal Won't Stop Iran Bomb

09-07-2014

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shrugged off Iran's purported agreement to stop enriching uranium above 5 percent.

Speaking before Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper addressed the Knesset, Netanyahu told parliamentarians the Islamic Republic will resume uranium enrichment at a time of its choosing.

"The agreement in Geneva did away with the 20 percent stop, but left the train on its track and enables Iran to upgrade the locomotive by developing new centrifuges so when the day comes, it can leap in a very short time to the final stop on an express track, without stopping at an intermediary stop," Netanyahu said.

He added that the goal must be to take its "nuclear train off its tracks."

International Atomic Energy Agency officials confirmed Iranian nuclear program chief Ali Akhbar Salehi's announcement that IAEA inspectors disconnected the centrifuges at the Natanz facility.

"The glacier of sanctions against Iran is melting while our centrifuges are...still working," Salehi said.

Netanyahu also noted Iran's state sponsor of terror groups, including Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah.
