Israeli alternate Prime Minister announced his attempt to prevent the signing of the nuclear agreement between Iran and the United States.

Iran PressMiddle East: I call on the president of the united states, Joe Biden, and the US administration to refrain, even now at this last minute, from signing the agreement with Iran, Naftali Bennett tweeted.

"This agreement will send approximately a quarter of a trillion dollars to the Iranian administration's pocket and its regional proxies and will enable Iran to develop, install and operate centrifuges, with almost no restrictions, in a mere two years," Bennett claimed.

"Throughout the past year, even when it was very close, we successfully convinced our White House counterparts not to give in to Iranian demands," he added.

"I hope this will remain the case. One way or another, the State of Israel is not a party to the agreement. Israel is not committed to any of the restrictions stemming from the agreement and will utilize all available tools to prevent the Iranian nuclear program from advancing," the Israeli Prime Minister ended the tweet.

According to the nuclear deal signed in 2015 between Iran and the P5+1, including China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; plus Germany, Tehran was involved in a process to agree to certain restrictions on its nuclear industry in exchange for the easing of economic sanctions and other incentives.

As a result, Iran started gradually reducing some of its commitments under the accord, such as the level of enriched uranium it produces, which could potentially enable Tehran to build an atomic bomb. According to the Iranian authorities; however, this “is not on the agenda.”
