Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday called on the world to maintain economic pressure on Iran in the hopes that it would force the Islamic Republic to dismantle its entire nuclear program.

"Today is the time to stop a potential nuclear 9/11," Bennett said in an interview with Fox News  responding to the breakdown of nuclear talks in Geneva over the weekend between Iran and world powers.

Bennett condemned a deal on the table in Geneva that supposedly calls for only a partial halt of Tehran's disputed nuclear program.

As nuclear negotiations culminating on Saturday failed to result in any agreement, talks were due to resume within ten days.

"The only deal we need to be seeking is a deal that would total dismantle the nuclear weapons production machine in Iran," Bennett said looking ahead at the expected next round of Geneva talks.
