Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the Iran issue as he arrived in London on Wednesday, stating that the Islamic Republic is swindling the West via the Iran nuclear deal. 

"[Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei is not giving supporters of the agreement any room for illusion," Netanyahu began. "He has made it clear that the US is the Great Satan and that Iran intends to destroy the State of Israel."

"This will not happen," he vowed. "Israel is a strong country and it will become even stronger."

"However, the conclusion that arises from the remarks of the tyrant in Tehran is that all responsible countries must cooperate in order to stop Iran's terrorism and aggression which, to my regret, will only increase as a result of the agreement."

Netanyahu's statement follows a series of remarks from the Ayatollah on Wednesday claiming that the US is a "Great Satan" and that Israel will cease to exist by 2040.
