Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Tuesday said he hopes the Iranian nuclear issue will be resolved by next year.

In an interview with Army Radio, Netanyahu said, "I hope the Iranian nuclear problem won't be there next year."

Netanyahu reiterated his stance that Iran cannot be allowed to armed with a nuclear weapon, and that Israel must be able to defend itself from threats with its own military might, if necessary.

"The problem is not a problem of days, but also not of years," he said.
