Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program between Tehran and the six international mediators will spark an arms race among the Sunni states, a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
Netanyahu, who also appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and ABC’s This Week, called for the rejection of a preliminary nuclear framework agreement struck on April 2 between the P5+1 group of negotiators and Iran.
The Israeli prime minister’s remark came days after the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, Germany and Iran reached a framework of a nuclear agreement in the Swiss city of Lausanne.Tehran agreed, among other things, to cut the number of centrifuges by more than two-thirds in 10 years, as well as not to enrich uranium over 3.67 percent for 15 years in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.
The deadline for a final deal is set for July 2015.
