In a phone call to US president Barack Obama, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Iranian nuclear deal framework could put Israel's future at risk if it was to be implemented, according to Mark Regev, the prime minister's spokesman.

In the talks, Netanyahu was said to have told Obama about Iran's recent comments that "the destruction of Israel is non-negotiable."

"In these fateful days Iran is accelerating the arming of its terror proxies to attack Israel," Netanyahu said in the call.

"This deal would legitimize Iran's nuclear program, bolster Iran's economy & increase Iran's aggression and terror," the premier said, adding that the deal makes Iran's path to a nuclear bomb easier.

"The alternative is standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran until a better deal is achieved."
