“We won’t kid ourselves. The international community shouldn’t be tempted into wishful thinking,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday after the victory of relatively moderate cleric Hasan Rohani as Iran’s new president..
“We must remember that, anyway, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei sets Iran’s nuclear policy. Iran will be tested by its deeds,” Netanyahu added.
Likud minister Yuval Steinitz, who one chaired the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, said he doubts that Supreme Leader Ayotallah Ali Khamenei, who “actually manages foreign affairs, national security and Iran’s nuclear program,” will change the path towards acquiring nuclear capability unless enough economic pressure is applied.
