Netanyahu suggests Congress speech preventing world powers from rushing to bad deal

March 8, 2015 12:43

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested Sunday that his speech to Congress last week may have influenced world powers seeking to sign a political framework deal with Iran by the end of the month to refrain from rushing into an agreement at any cost.

Speaking before the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said, "After my speech in Congress, we heard over the weekend from the foreign ministers of a number of world powers that they are not compelled to reach a deal as soon as possible. I hope that these comments will be reflected in their actions."
