Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu continued to press world leaders on the danger posed by a nuclear Iran.

Meeting on Monday with Meng Jianzhu, a member of the Communist Party of China Central Committee Political Bureau, Netanyahu told Jianzhu that the pressure on Iran must not be relaxed.

Netanyahu also said Iran must not be allowed to retain centrifuges and a heavy water reactor, which are used to produce nuclear weapons, according to the Prime Minister’s Office.

Also Monday, meeting reporters with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski ahead of a private lunch meeting, Netanyahu said that “Poland and Israel recognize a tyrannical regime when they see one. And the tyrants of Tehran should not have centrifuges or plutonium to build nuclear weapons.”

The Israeli leader warned that the West should not allow Iran to keep most or all of its nuclear weapons capability in exchange for reducing sanctions.
