JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is urging the countries negotiating with Iran on its nuclear program not to "surrender."
Netanyahu says Iran should get the same deal as Syria, an agreement that specified the dismantling and removal of their chemical weapons capabilities.
In contrast, the apparent agreement with Iran includes leaving its nuclear weapons capabilities intact, under supervision, a tactic that has already proven ineffective.
Iran is interested in securing the West's surrender, Netanyahu said, and it cannot be allowed to achieve such an agreement. The ayatollah's regime must not be allowed to have a nuclear bomb.
"Iran at any time could kick the inspectors aside or deceive them -- it's done that in the past -- and go rush to make the enriched uranium that is necessary to make atomic bombs, and they can do that within weeks or months," Netanyahu warned.
"That's bad for Britain, bad for Europe, bad for the United States, bad for Russia, bad for China, very bad for Israel, bad for the Arabs too, bad for the world," he said.
Negotiations between the six world powers, the P5+1, and Iran are set to enter their final stage. Talks resume on Wednesday with the aim to reach a permanent agreement of the Islamic Republic's nuclear program by July 20.
