Meeting German President in Berlin, Herzog Denounces ‘Toothless’ Iran Deal

President Isaac Herzog publicly stressed Israel’s opposition to the current Iran nuclear deal draft, as he met on Sunday, September 4, in Berlin with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

“Iran is openly striving for Israel’s destruction, and the international community must treat it severely, firmly, and assertively,” said Herzog in comments alongside Steinmeier following their meeting. “Toothless and watered-down accords and sweeping benefits will not stop Iran.”

Herzog declared that Iran “has proven that it cannot be trusted,” and said Israel “will stand up and assertively and powerfully defend its citizens and Jewish communities all around the world. We expect our allies to stand firmly by our side at this hour.”

Germany is one of the main world powers currently negotiating a return to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, with a deal seen as likely in the next few weeks, despite persistent gaps between Tehran and Washington. (TOI / VFI News)
