Netanyahu to press Obama on Iran's nuclear program

These include the belief that a “recalcitrant state that develops or acquires weapons of mass destruction is certainly likely to use them;” that “only a credible military threat can allow diplomacy or other steps to effect a halt to this armament process;” and that “Israel must continue to build up its strength so that it will always be able and ready to defend itself by itself against any threat.”

“In another week-and-a-half or so, I will travel to the U.N. General Assembly. I will first meet with U.S. President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaGOP rep: North Korea wants Iran-type nuclear deal Dems fear lasting damage from Clinton-Sanders fight Iran's president warns US will pay 'high cost' if Trump ditches nuclear deal MORE,” Netanyahu announced. The meeting is expected to take place Sept. 30.

“I intend to focus on the issue of stopping Iran's nuclear program. The way to stop Iran's nuclear program requires four steps: halting all uranium enrichment; removing all enriched uranium; closing [the underground uranium enrichment facility at Fordow near] Qom; and stopping the plutonium [production] track.”

“Only a combination of these four steps will constitute an actual stopping of the nuclear program, and until all four of these measures are achieved, the pressure on Iran must be increased and not relaxed, and certainly not eased.”
