Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that ‘Iran must and will be stopped,’ at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington DC on Tuesday. «Darkness is descending on our region. Iran is building an aggressive empire,» said Netanyahu. «Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Yemen and more to come.» He also said that Israel and «other countries in the... Еще region» will be on America's side if US President Trump decides to walk away from the Iran nuclear deal. Netanyahu also commented on the Israel-Palestine conflict, saying that «to get peace, President [Mahmoud] Abbas [of the State of Palestine] has to embrace peace and to stop supporting terror.» The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is said to be the strongest lobby in Washington and advocates pro-Israel policies to the American Congress with bipartisan supporters.
