Iran and Israel cross swords at Davos

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during a special address at the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 23, 2014Davos (Switzerland) (AFP) – Iran on Thursday stepped up attempts to normalise its relations with the West with a Davos charm offensive that was immediately attacked by Israel as a confidence trick. On a visit to the Swiss resort aimed at enticing international investors back to Iran, President Hassan Rouhani told the World Economic Forum his government was sincere in its desire for a new relationship based on mutual trust and a rebuilding of economic ties that have been shattered by international sanctions. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, also speaking at the prestigious gathering, warned the West not to take the media-friendly Iranian's offer at face value, insisting there was no concrete evidence of any fundamental change in the nature of the Islamic regime. "Hassan Rouhani can say something but it doesn't make it real," Netanyahu said.
