Israel accuses world powers of “deafening silence” over Iran threats

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the majority of UN member states on Thursday of doing “absolutely nothing” to counter Iran’s threat to “destroy” Israel.

He called on world powers to do everything possible to ensure that Iran sticks to the recently-agreed deal limiting its nuclear programme.

He also said he was willing to meet Palestinian negotiators at any time, without pre-conditions, for fresh peace talks.
