Prime Minister Netanyahu stated that “the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) determined that Iran had refused to allow IAEA inspectors to clandestine sites at which Iran had carried out secret military nuclear activity. Iran has systematically violated its commitments by hiding sites and enriching fissionable material, and has committed other violations”. “The reality certainly requires it in the light of these revelations, for the international community to join the U.S. and reimpose paralysing sanctions on Iran”, he added. Netanyahu went on to assert that “the coronavirus has not lessened by one iota our determination to act against Iran’s aggression… Israel will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons and will continue to act methodically against Iran’s attempts to militarily entrench on our borders”.
