Netanyahu Praises Canadian PM

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he hopes other countries will follow the example set by Canada, which on Friday broke off diplomatic relations with Iran.

Speaking an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Netanyahu praised the surprise move by Ottawa as a “clarion call to action” and added that world leaders must do more to condemn Iran's undertakings, including its threats against Israel.

“We have to build a wall, not of silence, but of condemnation and resolve. Canada just put a very big brick in that wall that is necessary for the peace of the world,” he said.
