Israel: PM Netanyahu outlines a "better" Iran nuclear deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outlined the components of what he believes would constitute a "better" Iran nuclear deal during an address in Jerusalem, Sunday. The first component, Netanyahu stated, would be to significantly roll back Iran's nuclear capabilities by shutting down Iran's "illicit underground facilities." In addition Netanyahu recommended linking the lifting of restrictions on Iran's nuclear facilities to an "end of Iran's aggression in the region, its worldwide terrorism and its threats to annihilate Israel." The prime minister's remarks come after Iran, the US, the UK, China, Germany, France and Russia reached a preliminary agreement on Iran's nuclear programme in Lausanne, Switzerland on April 2 following around 18 months of negotiations.
