Prime Minister Binyanmin Netanyahu on Thursday said that all the countries of the world that understand that Iran is an exporter of world terror must join Israel in "stating that fact clearly" in order to emphasize the importance of preventing the Islamic Republic from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Speaking at a press conference in the aftermath of Wednesday's terror attack in Bulgaria in which seven people were killed, five of them Israeli tourists, Netanyahu said that the bus bombing was part of a "world terror campaign" that Iran and its proxy Hezbollah have been waging on five continents over the past year.



The prime minister said that Iran and Hezbollah have tried to carry out terror attacks in India, Thailand, Kenya, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia, Greece, South Africa, Cyprus and the US, where they attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador.

Netanyahu vowed that Israel would not submit to Iran's terror, saying Israel was a "strong country with strong people."
