LONDON, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - At the talks of the six key nations (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) with Iran on its nuclear programme that are opening on October 15 in Geneva, it would be better for the West not to make any deals with Tehran than to achieve some bad compromise, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated in an interview published by the Financial Times on Friday.
“No deal is better than a bad deal, and a bad deal would be a partial agreement which lifts sanctions off Iran and leaves them with the ability to enrich uranium or to continue work on their heavy water plutonium, which is what is needed to produce nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said.
He noted that Iran’s nuclear programme “is an existential threat for Israel.” “I think we are before a fateful decision that Europe has to make and the United States has to make,” the prime minister said.
Itar-Tass has learnt from diplomatic circles in London that U.S. President Barack Obama told Benjamin Netanyahu the other day that Washington intended to start easing sanctions against Iran in exchange for concessions on its nuclear programme. According available information, the United States and Iran “have made significant progress towards reaching a tentative agreement.”
