Iran still intent on acquiring nuclear arms despite deal: Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chairs the weekly cabinet meeting at his Jerusalem office on January 3, 2016Iran is still seeking to achieve nuclear military capabilities, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday, after a deal with world powers scaling down Tehran's nuclear abilities was implemented. "Even after signing the nuclear deal, Iran has not relinquished its ambition to obtain nuclear weapons, and continues to act to destabilise the Middle East and spread terror throughout the world while violating its international commitments," a statement from Netanyahu's office read. The historic nuclear accord between Iran and major powers entered into force Saturday as the UN confirmed that Tehran has shrunk its atomic programme and as painful sanctions were due to be lifted on the Islamic republic.
