Zionist regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeated his call for the exertion of tougher international pressure on Iran over its nuclear energy program.
Netanyahu told a meeting of Zionist regime ministers on Tuesday that halting Iran’s nuclear energy program tops his agenda during his upcoming visit to the US in late September.
Netanyahu is scheduled to hold a meeting with US President Barack Obama on September 30 and deliver a speech at the UN General Assembly.
The Zionist regime’s premier urged the international community to throw its weight behind three demands: preventing Iran from enriching uranium, removing Iran’s enriched uranium reserves, and closing the Fordow nuclear facility in central Iran.
Netanyahu said: “Until … these measures are achieved, the pressure on Iran must be increased and not relaxed, and certainly not eased.”
The Zionist regime prime minister argued that all diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving Tehran’s nuclear issue must be accompanied by a “credible military threat.”
The US, Zionist regime and some of their allies baselessly accuse Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program with the Zionist regime repeatedly threatening to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities based on the unsubstantiated allegation.
Iran notes that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has every right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, promising a crushing response to any act of aggression against it.
Unlike Iran, Zionist regime, which is widely believed to possess between 200 to 400 nuclear warheads, is a non-signatory to the NPT and continues to defy international calls to join the treaty.
