If Iran has no intention of acquiring nuclear weapons, then why is it developing long-range, nuclear-capable ballistic missiles? Israel’s President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked Thursday, in response to the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani’s speech to the Davos Forum. As a “prudent moderate,” they asked, how does Rouhani justify sending arms and Hizballah units to Syria and financing terrorist networks across the world? Is this how the Iranian president conducts his avowed goals of peace and stability? They asked.
Netanyahu urged the world not to be gulled by Iran's attempts to deny any intention of developing nuclear weapons.
