Any permanent agreement with Iran “cannot succeed if its President Hassan Rouhani acts according to its words, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday in his report on conversations at last week’s World Economic Forum at Davos.
“Rouhani said that Iran was against international involvement in Syria, but Iran is the country that is most involved and aids the Assad regime in perpetrating mass slaughters on a daily basis,” the Prime Minister noted.
“He said that he was against the killing of innocents, but several days previously dozens of people were executed in Iran, most of whom, I can assure you, were innocent….
“The most important and most significant thing, Rouhani said that Iran would not dismantle even one centrifuge.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu cited Rouhani’s “assault of pleasantness” and added, “There is a problem here. We know the truth. There is a regime here that, under cover of an assault of smiles, is trying to arm itself with nuclear weapons, to reach the status of a threshold state that could achieve nuclear weapons very quickly, and a country that has not changed its true ideology at all.”
