Netanyahu: Israel has documents on Iranian nuclear plan

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that his country has obtained “half a ton” of documents proving that Iran once had a nuclear weapons program.

 

The capture of the documents “is a historic feat of the secret services,” the prime minister said, asserting that the texts show that Iran lied about its nuclear ambitions before reaching an agreement in 2015 with the world powers.

Iran has denied that its nuclear program is for war purposes.

In a national television address, Netanyahu said Israel recently obtained 55,000 documents and 183 CDs with information “from Iran’s nuclear archives.”

Speaking in English, perhaps considering an international audience, Netanyahu said that among the documents there is evidence that Iran hosted an “Amad Project” to develop atomic weapons

President Donald Trump has until May 12 to decide whether the United States withdraws from the nuclear agreement with Iran. Netanyahu has spearheaded the requests for the United States to get out of the pact.
