Kerry and Netanyahu disagree on Iran
The controversial Iranian nuclear program has left John Kerry and Netanyahu on bitter terms because they can’t agree on a solution during their meeting in Rome. Israel prefers a military action in Iran while the US privileges a diplomatic approach. Tehran has always stated that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and warned that it will respond to any military.
Netanyahu believes that a nuclear Iran puts their state at risk. He stated that the centrifuges for enrichment and a plutonium heavy-water plant are all signs of developing nuclear weapons. He added that the fissile material stockpile and the construction of underground nuclear facilities are “for one reason- for military purposes”. He ruled out a “partial deal” which he considers to be a “bad deal”.
President Rouhani of Iran has been termed untrustworthy by Israel despite the international community considering him to be more moderate than his predecessor, Ahmadinejad. Iran argues that its nuclear peaceful program for improving on its electricity and medical treatments is a right under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Secretary of State Kerry said they will continue to “pursue a diplomatic initiative but with eyes wide open” before urging Iran to confine itself to international standards. He said it is necessary to “know that actions are being taken which make it crystal clear, undeniably clear, fail-safe to the world that whatever program is pursued is indeed a peaceful program”.
Analysts believe that Iran is unlikely to give up on its program after defying several resolutions and sanctions. The government has continued to develop the project.
Israel wants a military intervention in Iran but doesn’t want to be engaged in such an adventure without the participation of its major ally in the world, the US.
