Netanyahu on Sunday had mocked a proposal that would allow Iran to retain a capacity for low-level uranium enrichment as part of a deal to end sanctions that have crippled that country.

He did not say this was an American proposal, but he placed his derision of the proposal in the context of his talks last week with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
