Israel Prime Minister: Don't Trust Iranian President's "Charm Offensive," Intensify Sanctions

Sounding the alarm

|

Jerusalem urged the world on Thursday not to be fooled by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's smiles and to intensify sanctions against the regime until he takes concrete steps toward dismantling Tehran's nuclear program.

"One should not be taken in by Rouhani's deceptive words," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement. "The same Rouhani boasted in the past how he deceived the international community with nuclear talks, even as Iran was continuing with its nuclear program."
