Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Iran was «seeking to destroy Israel» during a press statement following a meeting with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in Jerusalem on Monday.
«We are faced with an evil empire, it's called Iran. Iran seeks to destroy Israel, it says so openly it works for this incessantly,» said Netanyahu, adding that «Iran wants to develop nuclear weapons... Еще, it's transgressing on its agreement and commitment.»
Iran wants to develop precision guided missiles that can hit any target in Israel within five to 10 metres, it's doing that. Iran wants to use Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen as bases to attack Israel with statistical missiles and precision guided missiles. That is a great, great danger,» he added.
