Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday urged self-proclaimed president-elect Joe Biden not to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, saying Israel would push back against American efforts to do so.
“Do not return to the previous nuclear deal,” Netanyahu said at a memorial service for Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion.
“We must stick to an uncompromising policy to ensure that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons,” he added.
According to Netanyahu, Israel’s “categorical position against Iran’s nuclearization” as well as its opposition to the Obama-led nuclear deal was instrumental in generating a sea change among Arab countries regarding their attitudes towards Israel.
Biden has called for the U.S. to revert to the nuclear accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between world powers and Iran.
