Netanyahu says West has ‘no chance’ of striking final nuclear deal with Iran

“No final status agreement with Iran will work,” the premier said hours after returning from his trip to Davos, where he took part in the World Economic Forum.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told his cabinet ministers in Jerusalem on Sunday that continued negotiations between Iran and the Western powers are pointless.

“No final status agreement with Iran will work,” the premier said hours after returning from his trip to Davos, where he took part in the World Economic Forum.

The premier cited the remarks made during the event by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who vowed that Iran sought peaceful relations “with countries that it already recognized.”

“Rouhani spoke of being in favor of recognizing all countries in the Middle East, yet he refused to answer sharp questions that were asked of him regarding recognition of Israel,” the premier said. “He said that Iran would not disarm its nuclear program, and it would not even dismantle one centrifuge.”

Under these circumstances, any agreement with Iran “cannot succeed,” according to the premier.
