PM: Stronger Sanctions Needed Against Iran

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Monday, that sanctions taken against Iran "are not efficient and not effective, and don't have any effect on Iran's nuclear program."

Addressing the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, he continued, "Strong sanctions are needed against the central bank of Iran and its oil industry. Meanwhile, it is not happening and therefore the nuclear program continues."
