    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Iran will continue struggle against the United States and its allies, first and foremost Israel despite the agreement on Iran's nuclear program.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Iranian Supreme leader’s recent comment on the nuclear deal with world powers made it clear that Iran will continue anti-US and anti-Israeli policy, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

    On July 14, six world powers, including the United States, concluded a long-awaited deal with Iran to allow easing of sanctions against Tehran in exchange for guarantees of the Iranian nuclear program's peaceful nature.

    The following day, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the deal will not change Iran’s position regarding the "arrogant US government."

    "Anyone who thought that the nuclear deal would lead Iran to change its policy will get an overwhelming response from Khamenei's aggressive and defiant speech… the Iranians are explicitly saying that they will continue in their struggle against the United States and its allies, first and foremost Israel," Netanyahu told ministers at the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem as quoted by the Haaretz newspaper.

    Netanyahu has been a vocal opponent of the agreement, saying the money received from the lifting of sanctions will be used to expand terrorism in Israel and the Middle East, allegedly sponsored by Tehran.
