Iran nuclear deal will 'fuel terrorism': Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivers a speech during a visit at the Universal Exhibition 2015 in Milan on August 27, 2015The deal to curb Iran’s nuclear programme will bolster Tehran’s ability to fund global terrorism by providing the Islamic state with “billions of dollars” in sanctions relief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared Saturday. “Iran will get hundreds of billions of dollars from sanctions relief and investments to fuel its aggression and terrorism in the Middle East and North Africa and beyond,” Netanyahu — who is bitterly opposed to the deal agreed by Iran and world powers in July — said during a visit to the Italian city of Florence. Speaking ahead of a meeting Saturday evening with his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi he compared the threat posed by the Islamic State jihadist group with the “far more serious threat…posed by another Islamic state, the Islamic state of Iran and specifically its pursuit of nuclear weapons”.
