ISRAEL (OBSERVATORY) – Israeli intelligence has extracted half a ton of classified materials proving Iran’s military nuclear program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced.
The accusatory statement was made live on the local television in the midst of an international discussion on the need to review the agreements reached with Iran over its nuclear program for three years.
“These files convincingly prove that Iran lied about the fact that it never had a military nuclear program,” Netanyahu said.
He said that a few weeks ago, Israeli intelligence extracted half a ton of materials, including 55,000 pages of text documents proving Iran’s so-called “Amad” project. Netanyahu accused Iran of “storing and expanding the military-nuclear” know-how “after signing the Iranian deal.
“Iran lied in 2015 when it did not admit to the whole of the IAEA, as the deal demanded.” The Iranian deal, the nuclear deal is based on lies, Iranian lies and deceit,” the Prime Minister concluded.
In 2015, Iran and the six international mediators (Russia, the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany) reached an historic agreement on the settlement of the long-standing problem of Iran’s nuclear energy.
The parties adopted a Joint Comprehensive Action Plan, the implementation of which removes sanctions imposed by Iran imposed by the UN Security Council, the United States and the European Union.
Netanyahu from the very beginning called the deal a “historical mistake.” The Israeli prime minister sought to prove that the agreements not only legalize Iran’s position as a threshold nuclear power, but also allow it to expand its support for satellites throughout the Middle East, including paramilitary groups in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, by lifting sanctions. In this regard, Netanyahu supports the intention of US leader Donald Trump to tighten the Iranian deal.
