Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday (June 12) repeated previous statements on this week's presidential elections in Iran, saying they will not change the country's quest for nuclear weapons.
"As for the so called elections taking place in Iran this week… some elections - they decide who the candidates are. That's an interesting concept, but we're not going to adopt it. So, as for the so called elections taking place in Iran this week, well unfortunately they will change nothing of significance. This regime will continue to be led by one man, one ruler, who will continue Iran's quest for nuclear weapons," Netanyahu told reporters after meeting Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk on the first day of his visit to Poland.
"On Syria, both our countries are concerned about the terrible carnage occurring in that country. Israel is not a party to the internal conflict in Syria. But Israel will defend itself if attacked and we reserve the right to act if our national security is threatened," he said.
