#Netanyahu: More powerful sanctions are due to have a real impact on Iran

(INN). Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed satisfaction Thursday with the latest sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States, Britain and Canada. He warned, however, that they were not enough
At his joint press conference with Romanian Prime Minister Emil Boc, Netanyahu said:
"The goal of Iran's nuclear program had been the subject of controversy but it is no longer such. Iran is vigorously working to achieve a nuclear weapon. This is the threat against Israel, against the region and against the entire world."

"I have to say that I’m pleased that more powerful sanctions have been taken, but I believe that more powerful sanctions are due, especially those that would focus on the oil sector and most especially on the banking sector. If anything has a chance of taking a real bite into Iran’s economy and having a real impact on this regime, it is these more powerful sanctions. I hope they’ll be taken."
