Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu Addresses US Congress
In a major speech that stirred political controversy in two countries, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Congress on Tuesday that negotiations underway between Iran and the United States would 'all but guarantee' that Tehran would get nuclear weapons, a step he said the world must avoid at all costs. 'Iran has proven time and again that it cannot be trusted,' no matter what it says about permitting verification of the terms of any accord designed to prevent it from getting such weapons, he said. "The greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons," he said in remarks before a packed House chamber. Netanyahu spoke shortly after Secretary of State John Kerry met for more than two hours in Switzerland with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in hopes of completing an international framework agreement later this month to curb Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
