MOSCOW, November 20, 22:44 /ITAR-TASS/. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested solving the Iranian nuclear issue the same way the problem of the Syrian chemical weapons was solved.
“It will be a peaceful and diplomatic solution of the nuclear issue in Iran in exactly the same way it was done with the chemical weapons in Syria,” the prime minister said after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He noted that Israel was interested in a peaceful resolution of the issue. “Israel will suffer more than others if this solution is not achieved,” he said, adding that such a solution should be enforceable.
When drawing a parallel between Syria and Iran, Netanyahu noted that the international community would hardly agree with a scenario that calls for eliminating only a part of the Syrian chemical weapons or allows their production infrastructure to remain in place.
Putin said he was optimistic about the talks on the Iranian nuclear programme.
“We hope that mutually acceptable solutions will be found very soon,” he said. “Consultations between the P5+1 and Iran indicate that such possibilities exist.”
“We in Russia are optimistic about this negotiation process,” he added.
