• November 8, 2013 8:01 am

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the nuclear deal with Iran being considered in Geneva is "very, very bad" in a statement, pointing out Iran is not required to take apart any centrifuges but nevertheless the international community would relieve sanctions.

It would be the "deal of the century" for Iran, he said.

Full statement:

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: I met Secretary Kerry right before he leaves to Geneva. I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal, and the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. It's a very bad deal. Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge, but the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran, for the first time after many years. Iran gets everything that it wanted in this stage, and it pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal. A very, very bad deal. It's the deal of the century for Iran. It's a very dangerous and bad deal for peace in the international community.
