Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Iran is ‘seeking nuclear weapons and conquest’ during a speech he gave at the opening ceremony of Paraguay's new embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. Netanyahu outlined his view that Iran is the major barrier to peace in the Middle East, calling them an ‘aggressive force.’ «If you asked most of the governments and most of the leaders in the... Еще Middle East, what is the principal barrier to peace, what is the greatest threat to our security, they would say three things: Iran, Iran, Iran,” he said. Netanyahu also praised Monday's speech given by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in which he issued 12 demands on Iran. «No enrichment, tough sanctions, and Iran should get out of Syria. We believe this is the right policy. We believe it's the only policy that can ultimately guarantee the security of the Middle East and peace in our region,» Netanyahu said. Monday's opening ceremony made Paraguay the third country to move their embassy to Jerusalem, following the United States and Guatemala.
