Israel accuses Iran of continuing nuclear program


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday accused Iran of continually expanding the range of its nuclear-capable missiles, violating its landmark deal to curb its nuclear program, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

In a statement, Netanyahu claimed Israeli intelligence services had obtained 55,000 pages of Iranian documents revealing how Tehran allegedly lied to the world after signing the nuclear deal.

 

"Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons program, 100,000 secret files proved that they lied," he said.

 

His remarks followed a weekend meeting between Netanyahu and newly sworn-in U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

 

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce a decision on May 12 whether or not the U.S. will pull out of the deal.

 

In July 2015, the EU and the P5+1 group of countries — China, Germany, France, Russia, the U.K. and U.S. — signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, with Tehran. The accord stipulated a gradual lifting of anti-Iranian sanctions in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program and allowing inspections to ensure that the nature of the program is peaceful.
