Israel’s designated prime minister, Naftali Bennett, said Sunday that renewing the international nuclear deal with Iran will be a mistake.

In a speech to parliament, Bennett said that Israel remains ready to act against Iran.

“Israel will not allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” Bennett said. “Israel will not be a party to the agreement and will continue to preserve full freedom of action.”

The strong comments maintain the confrontational policy by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Nonetheless, Bennett thanked President Joe Biden and the US administration for supporting Israel over the decades.
