Netanyahu Says Iran Delays and Deceives in Atomic Talks

Local Editor

Iran is looking to deceive the world over its nuclear program in talks with the P5+1 group of world powers, the Zionist premier Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday after talks with Czech President Vaclav Klaus.

"It looks as though they see the talks as another opportunity to delay and deceive and buy time, pretty much as North Korea did for many years," he said, just days ahead of the next round of negotiations which are to take place in Baghdad on May 23.

"They might try to go from meeting-to-meeting with empty promises. They might agree to something in principle, but not implement it. They might even agree to implement something, but nothing that would actually derail their nuclear weapons program," Netanyahu said at a press conference in the Czech capital.

The P5+1 grouping of diplomats from permanent U.N. Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany held a first round of talks with Iran on April 14 in Istanbul and a second round is due to take place in Baghdad on May 23.

But Netanyahu and other top Zionist officials have repeatedly expressed skepticism that the talks would succeed in convincing Iran to abandon its nuclear program, which the Zionist entity and much of the West believes is a bid to develop atomic weapons -- a charge strongly denied by Tehran.

The ‘Israeli entity’ is reportedly concerned the upcoming talks could ultimately end with a deal that would allow Tehran to continue enriching uranium.

The entity of occupation widely considered the sole if nuclear power in the Middle East, has consistently warned a nuclear-armed Iran would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state.
