Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that Iran's atomic drive "will be stopped", a day after an interim agreement bringing sanctions relief for Tehran took effect.
"Iran's military nuclear program must be stopped, and Iran's military nuclear program will be stopped," Netanyahu said at a joint news conference with his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper, without saying how.
The Zionist entity has long warned that a nuclear Iran would pose an existential threat to the Occupied Territories, and has refused to rule out a military strike to prevent that from happening.
"The interim (Geneva) agreement which went into force today (Monday) does not prevent Iran from realizing its intention to develop nuclear weapons," he told the Zionist parliament.
"A nuclear armed Iran would not just endanger Israel -- it would threaten the peace and security of our region," Netanyahu said on Tuesday trying to intimidate his audience.
His remarks came just hours after the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed Iran had halted production of 20 percent enriched uranium, marking the entry into force of the landmark deal with the P5+1 group of world powers.
The international community also kept its part of the deal, with both the European Union and United States separately announcing they were easing crippling sanctions on Iran.
Netanyahu also said that Iran's nuclear issue, and the rise of "Islamism across the Middle East," had united the Zionist entity and many Arab countries in their efforts to face these "twin challenges".
"In meeting those twin challenges, these countries do not see Israel as their enemy but as being on the same side of a difficult conflict," he said explicitly.
