The Associated Press — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Iran wants to destroy Israel and that world powers need to be tough on the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.
Speaking in Jerusalem on Monday as the head of the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog visited Tehran, Netanyahu said, "Iran wants to destroy Israel and it is developing nuclear weapons to fulfill that goal."
Most of the West believe that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, a charge that Iran denies. Israel views Iran as a strategic threat due to frequent calls by Tehran for its destruction, in addition to Iran's long-range missile and nuclear program.
Netanyahu spoke as International Atomic Energy Agency head Yukiya Amano is in Tehran to try and get Iran to agree to probes of suspect sites.
