Netanyahu speaks against partial nuclear accord with Iran

Before his meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Rome Wednesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commented that the West appears to be nearing a nuclear deal with Iran, but warned against acceptance of a partial accord with Iran – any more than the US was ready for a partial accord that left Syria with part of its chemical weapons stockpile. He called a nuclear-armed Iran the foremost regional security concern and talking to reporters he repeated Israel’s demands:  

"Iran must not have have centrifuges (for) enrichment, they shouldn't have a plutonium heavy-water plant, which is used only for nuclear weapons, they should get rid of (their amassed) fissile material, and they shouldn't have underground nuclear facilities, (which are) underground for one reason – for military purposes."
Secretary Kerry also repeated the view that no deal was better than a bad deal.
