Netanyahu Tells UN Sanctions on Iran Must Remain in Place

Warns of Iran getting a nuclear weapon


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned United Nations delegates Tuesday that they must stand firm in putting pressure on Iran to open up its nuclear program to inspection to avoid a military conflict.

"Iran wants to be in position to rush forward and build nuclear bombs before the world can prevent it," Netanyahu said, warning that recent gestures from Iran toward peace are a "ruse" to lull the West into backing off.
