    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Tehran has not abandoned its aim to obtain nuclear weapons even after signing an agreement on its nuclear program.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Tehran has not abandoned its aim to obtain nuclear weapons even after signing an agreement on its nuclear program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

    "Even after signing the nuclear deal, Iran has not relinquished its ambition to obtain nuclear weapons, and continues to act to destabilize the Middle East and spread terror throughout the world while violating its international commitments," Netanyahu said, as quoted by Israel National News broadcaster.

    He added that the international community should monitor Tehran's activities to ensure Iran would not develop nuclear weapons.

    On Saturday, International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed Iran's compliance with the agreement on country's nuclear program and implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed by Iran and a group of world powers, came into effect.

    On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany, signed the JCPOA. The agreement guarantees the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

      Bibi: We just snatched a laptop out of Iran two hours ago, yes we did. It has blueprints of a new war head with words "manufactured right after sanctions lifted" etched on it. We can show it to you, yes we can. It is dated for completion six months after sanctions lifted. And with Ahmadinejad's sig..... I mean Rouhani's signiture on it. Honest. We are the best at this stuff. They don't call us "dreadfull few" for nothing. Believe me. These russki.... I mean pesky eye-rain-ians are going to have a new-killer bomb in six months. We are chosenites. We never lie.

      Translation; Iran knows full well US and middle eastern allies will not allow Iran to take business away from us. We are fully prepared to nuke her if she dares to do trade, of course they understand this absolute decree and it is certain they will foolishly attempt to secure nuclear deterrent to stop us. However we are prepared for such treachery and will ensure sanctions will exist till the day of nuking. Recorded after Nets spoke into truth recorder.
