Foreign Minister Yair Lapid asserted that any deal with Iran would not “apply to us in any way, and we are going to do whatever is necessary to make sure Iran doesn’t become a threshold nuclear country”. He also asserted: “We have told the world we are not willing to take it anymore. Iran says we can bring the war to your doorstep, because you will never bring it to ours. This is not going to happen… If the Iranians are bringing war to our doorstep, then they’re going to find war at theirs. If they want to avoid it, then we will avoid it as well”.
