MK Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud) on Saturday said that the coming period would be critical for the future of Iran's nuclear program, warning of Israeli action if accords were not made.

The former Defense Committee chairman told Israel Radio that if no agreement was reached, Israel should take self-protective action to remove the Iranian nuclear threat. He added that Israel has made it clear that it reserves the right to protect its security and US President Barack Obama recognizes this right.

The Likud lawmaker downplayed Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's recent "charm offensive" aimed at the international community, saying he was just a mouthpiece for Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who he said actually Tehran's nuclear policy.
