ISRAEL (OBSERVATORY) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel does not seek a war with Iran. He told about this in an interview with CNN.
“No one would like such a development of events. This Iran changes the rules of the game in the region, “the Israeli prime minister said (quoted by Reuters ).
On the eve, on April 30, Netanyahu submitted documents to the public, which, he said, confirm that Iran is secretly developing nuclear weapons. Iran keeps all the information on the basis of which the development of nuclear weapons continues, in a secret complex in the Shorabad area in Tehran. Israeli intelligence managed to obtain this data – 55 thousand pages of secret documents and 183 CDs with classified information, the Israeli prime minister said. He promised to convey all this information to the UN and the IAEA.
In an interview with CNN, the Israeli prime minister also said that the process of studying Iranian documents continues. “When we received these 100,000 documents, we learned many things that we never knew,” he said. He added that no country has the best intelligence on Iran, which Israel has.
In Tehran, accusations of secret development of nuclear weapons were rejected. The country’s Foreign Minister Abbas Arakchi called the presentation of Netanyahu “an absurd game” and “scheduled show” before May 12, when the US president should decide whether to maintain a nuclear deal with Iran. However, according to a Reuters source in Israel, Netanyahu told Trump about the extracted intelligence on March 5 during their meeting.
In 2015, Iran and the countries of the Six – the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China – concluded an agreement implying lifting of sanctions from Iran in exchange for the country’s refusal from the nuclear program. Russia’s permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said that first of all the documents submitted to Netanyahu should be studied by the IAEA.
