Iran Mocks PM Netayahu's Claims About It's Nuclear Bomb Development

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads the weekly cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem

Calling it a "great intelligence achievement" Mr Netanyahu said the documents show that Tehran lied about its nuclear ambitions before signing a 2015 deal with world powers.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry, who said in 2015 that the US had "absolute knowledge" about Iran's past military uses of nuclear research, had nothing to say on his Twitter feed. The serious crisis brewing between Israel and Iran in Syria underscores the volatility of the present moment.

Ghassemi also reiterated previous government statements denying Saudi and U.S. accusations that Iran is supplying weapons to Yemen's Huthi rebels, backed politically by Tehran.

The EU's top diplomat Federica Mogherini issued a statement after the presentation saying the International Atomic Energy Agency "IAEA is the only impartial international organisation in charge of monitoring Iran's nuclear commitments". Under the the framework of the deal Iran would redesign, convert, and reduce its nuclear facilities in return for the lifting of global sanctions.

Netanyahu sought to step up pressure on the United States to pull out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, holding a primetime address on Israeli TV to trash the Islamic republic.

That's President Donald Trump's decision, due by May 12, about whether the USA will remain in the multiparty pact. The 100,000 files contain, among other things, blueprints, charts, photos, videos and presentations dealing with nuclear weaponry. Second, even after the deal, Iran continued to preserve and expand its nuclear weapons knowledge for future use. "But, we knew that already".

Mr Netanyahu has long criticized the deal and welcomed the Trump administration's pledge to withdraw next month if it is not improved.

Referring to claims by Netanyahu that it has 55,000 documents from a facility in Iran is "ridiculous" because Iran would never harbor such important documents in an abandoned area, Araghci said.

Netanyahu's blockbuster presentation won effusive accolades from members of both the governing coalition and parliamentary opposition.

Opponents of the Iran nuclear deal said it confirmed that Iran can not be trusted. In all that trove of espionage, they'd point out, there is no evidence Iran is now in violation of the agreement.

It seems rather that Netanyahu is simply complaining the deal allowed Iran to do too much. "That doesn't mean I wouldn't negotiation a new agreement". According to a White House readout, the prime minister and Trump spoke on Sunday about "the continuing threats and challenges facing the Middle East region, especially the problems posed by the Iranian regime's destabilizing activities". "In life, you have to be flexible", Trump concluded at the end of the joint press conference.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the attack appears to have been carried out by Israel and targeted an arms depot for surface-to-surface missiles at a base in northern Syria known as Brigade 47.
