Jerusalem, Feb 10 IANS | 9 months ago

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the recent easing of sanctions on Iran has not only failed to moderate its policies, but is fuelling its aggression, a statement from the prime minister's house said.

"What is happening here is that the international community is reducing the sanctions, and Iran is increasing its aggression," Xinhua quoted Netanyahu as saying at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

"The Iranian foreign minister recently met with the head of Islamic Jihad. Iran continues to supply terrorist organisations with deadly weapons, continues aiding the massacre in Syria, and is sending warships to the Atlantic Ocean," he added.

These remarks came following reports that Iranian warships were sailing toward US maritime borders Saturday, which "was meant to counter US naval presence in the Persian Gulf", Iranian Navy chief R.-Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said.

Netanyahu has vocally protested the easing of economic sanctions while Iran and the P5+1 world powers are negotiating a deal on the Iran's long-disputed nuclear program, which Israel believes is geared to produce atomic bombs.
