PM Netanyahu on Canada's decision on Iran

  •    PM Netanyahu on Canada's decision to expel Iranian ambassador and close embassy in Tehran

    (Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

    Following is a statement that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued late Friday afternoon (7 September 2012):

    "I would like to commend Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for taking a step that showed leadership and daring and which sends a clear message to Iran and the entire world.

    One week after the display of anti-Semitism and hatred in Tehran, the government of Canada is taking a moral step of the highest order. Canada's determination is very important in order for the Iranians to understand that they cannot continue their race after nuclear weapons. This practical measure needs to serve as an example of international responsibility for the global community. It is important that the international community join in this pressure by setting Iran clear red lines."
