Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kept up his assault on the framework nuclear deal between world powers and Iran, saying late Saturday that the agreement is “preserving” the Islamic republic and “not dismantling” it.

“To my regret, all of the things I warned about vis-a-vis the framework agreement that was put together in Lausanne are coming true before our eyes,” Netanyahu said.

“This framework gives the leading terrorist state in the world a certain path to nuclear bombs,” he warned.
“How can such a country be trusted?”

The emerging deal, which is to be finalised by June 30, would leave Iran with “significant nuclear capabilities,” he said.

“It is not dismantling them, it is preserving them. We also see that the inspection is not serious… As of now, there is no monitoring,” he said.

“We see that the sanctions are being lifted, immediately, according to Iran’s demand, and this is without Iran having changed its policy of aggression everywhere.”

Following marathon talks in the Swiss city of Lausanne, the negotiators agreed on a framework deal on April 2, which Israel has repeatedly denounced as an “historic mistake”.
