Prime Minister Netanyahu on Iran nuclear deal

At the Weekly Cabinet Meeting 24.11.13

24/11/2013

1. Prime Minister Netanyahu made the following remarks:

"What was achieved last night in Geneva is not an historic agreement; it is an historic mistake. Today the world has become a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step toward attaining the most dangerous weapon in the world. For the first time, the world's leading powers have agreed to uranium enrichment in Iran while ignoring the UN Security Council decisions that they themselves led. Sanctions that required many years to put in place contain the best chance for a peaceful solution. These sanctions have been given up in exchange for cosmetic Iranian concessions that can be cancelled in weeks. This agreement and what it means endanger many countries including, of course, Israel. Israel is not bound by this agreement. The Iranian regime is committed to the destruction of Israel and Israel has the right and the obligation to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. As Prime Minister of Israel, I would like to make it clear: Israel will not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability."

2. Pursuant to Article 23 of the 1959 State Service Law (Appointments), the Cabinet decided to approve the appointment of Shai Nitzan to a six year-term as State Attorney, effective 17 December 2013.

3. The Cabinet decided to appoint a team to formulate – within six weeks – a plan to develop and strengthen the city of Taibe.

4. The Cabinet authorized the Ministerial Committee on Legislation to approve draft amendments to two laws regarding local authorities.

5. The Cabinet unanimously approved a plan to deal with the phenomenon of illegal migration which was presented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Interior Minister Gideon Saar, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and Prime Minister's Office Director General Harel Locker.
