Netanyahu: Going back to business as usual with Iran would be a mistake

At a joint news conference in Jerusalem with President Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien, PM Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that “going back to business as usual would be a mistake,” clearly addressing his remarks to incoming President Joe Biden and his offer to renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal if Iran complied fully with its terms. Netanyahu went on to stress that if Iran is unchecked, “tomorrow it will arm itself with nuclear-tipped ICBMs” and become “a global bully targeting Europe and America.”

He went on to say: As long as Iran continues to subjugate and threaten its neighbors, calls for Israel’s destruction, bankrolls, equips and trains terrorist organizations throughout the region and the world, and persists in its dangerous quest for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them, “we must not go back to business as usual, but rather unite to prevent this major threat to world peace.”
