JERUSALEM: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Neta­nyahu expressed his strong support for President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

“Israel fully supports President Trump’s bold decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran,” Netanyahu said in a televised address.

Netanyahu said leaving the current deal in place was “a recipe for disaster, a disaster for our region, a disaster for the peace of the world”.

“This is why Israel thinks that President Trump did a historic move.” Netanyahu unveiled tens of thousands of intelligence documents in a televised address on April 30 that he said showed Iran’s secret nuclear weapons ambitions.

Proponents of the nuclear deal argued the trove of documents Israel obtained from Tehran shed little new light on its nuclear programme and, in fact, made the case for why the accord is important.
