Israel Thanks Trump For His Decision to Withdraw From Iran Deal – Netanyahu
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has welcomed the US President Donald Trump decision to withdraw Washington from the Iran nuclear deal.
Netanyahu stated that Israel fully supports Trump in his decision to abandon the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), more widely known as Iran nuclear deal, which was negotiated in 2015.
“Israel fully supports today’s brave decision by President Trump to reject the catastrophic nuclear deal with Tehran,” Netanyahu said in a televised address to the nation.
The Israeli prime minister’s statement comes after US President Donald Trump earlier in the day announced his decision to withdraw Washington from the nuclear agreement with Iran.
In 2015, Iran and the six international mediators (Russia, the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany) reached a deal, which stipulated the removal of nuclear-related sanctions in exchange for Tehran keeping its nuclear program peaceful.
