Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tuesday that Iran's breakout time to a nuclear weapon would be "a year or less" under the terms of the emerging deal between Tehran and world powers in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Netanyahu spoke at the ceremonial opening of the 20th Knesset on Tuesday, hours before the deadline for the P5 + 1 group of world powers - the US, UK, China, France, Russia and Germany - to reach a framework agreement with Iran to restrict its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

He said that while he appreciates the friendship and support of the US, on the issue of Iran, which is an existential threat to the Jewish State, he must speak up, even when he goes against the opinion of Washington.
