Washington Rejects Netanyahu UN Speech on Iran

The US has rejected on Monday the recent comments made by Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about Iran during his UN speech in New York.

USA: State Department spokeswoman Jen PsakiThe US has rejected on Monday the recent comments made by Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about Iran during his UN speech in New York.

In his speech at the 69th annual session of the UN General Assembly, Netanyahu called Iran a greater “threat” than the so-called 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL) terrorist group operating in Syria and Iraq.

The Zionist premier claimed that ISIL must be defeated… "But to defeat ISIL and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear state power is to win the battle and lose the war.”

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Washington disagrees with Netanyahu's assertion, adding that the White House would like to show that Iran’s nuclear energy program is peaceful during the ongoing talks between the Islamic Republic and the P5+1 group of world powers.

She said that the US “would not agree with the characterization” made in Netanyahu’s speech that ISIL and Iran share similar goals of establishing an international Islamic caliphate.

Western media reports revealed that the Zionist entity offers support to the ISIL wounded terrorists, who are transported to the Occupied Territories to get treatment in Tel-Aviv hospitals.

Iran and its negotiating partners -- the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany-- have been holding talks to resolve the dispute over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program.

Since 1958, when the Zionist occupation entity began building its Dimona plutonium- and uranium-processing facility in the Negev Desert, it has secretly manufactured numerous nuclear warheads, making it the only player in the Middle East that possesses nuclear weapons.

Former US President Jimmy Carter has attested to the existence of the Israeli nuclear arsenal, which he said has between 200 and 400 warheads.
