Netanyahu Urges the UN: Keep Pressure on Iran
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urged the world to maintain pressure on Iran over its nuclear program in a speech Tuesday to the United Nations.
Diplomacy can work, he said, but only if the international community takes a firm stance. “We all want to give diplomacy with Iran a chance to succeed,” he said. “But when it comes to Iran, the greater the pressure, the greater the chance.”
“History has taught us that to prevent war tomorrow, we must be firm today,” he noted.
