Netanyahu wants Iran deal to cover missile capacity

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waves following his address to a joint session of the US Congress at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, March 3, 2015Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kept up his offensive against the framework nuclear deal with Iran on Tuesday, saying it fails to address Tehran's long-range missile arsenal. "Why doesn't the framework address Iran's intercontinental ballistic missile programme whose sole purpose is to carry nuclear payloads?" he asked on his official Twitter account. He said the economic benefits from the easing of sanctions would go to fund Iran-sponsored radicals across the Middle East. "What is to stop Iran from using the over one hundred billion dollars that will be unfrozen as part of this agreement to fund aggression and terror in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere," he tweeted.
