Israel “reserves its right to full freedom of diplomatic and operational actions in relation to the nuclear program in Iran”


The statements by the Israeli Prime Minister come days after signing a joint document with the US that reaffirms the ties between the two countries and names the Islamic Republic as a potential aggressor.

The Israeli Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, affirmed this Sunday before the meeting weekly from his cabinet that Israel “opposes the [Iranian] nuclear deal and reserves its right to full freedom of diplomatic and operational action in relation to Iran’s nuclear program.”

Lapid said he expressed this position to the US president, “one of the closest friends Israel has ever had,” during Joe Biden’s visit to the Hebrew country this week. Lapid defined the US visit as “historic” and recognized its results as “diplomatic, security and economic achievements that will strengthen the State of Israel” in the future.

That was the first Biden tour of the Middle East after his arrival in power, during which the US president visited Israel, Palestine and Saudi Arabia and held meetings with their respective leaders.

Biden and Lapid agree on the need to curb Iran’s nuclear program. This Thursday, both leaders signed a joint declaration of strategic association that reaffirms the “unbreakable ties” between their respective nations in terms of security and points to Iran as a potential aggressor.

“United States underscores that an integral part of this pledge is a commitment never to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon, and that it is willing to use all elements of its national power to ensure that outcome,” the statement said, also noting that Washington will cooperate with other interlocutors to confront “aggression and destabilizing activities” of the Islamic Republic.
