Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened up the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday by praising Canada for its recent decision to cut ties with Iran, saying this constituted the type of  "red line" that the world needed to set down for Iran.

"I want to congratulate Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the moral, courageous step he took," Netanyahu said, adding this was a step that showed true leadership.

Netanyahu said the move sent a "principled message to the world that it is forbidden for the dark regime in Iran to get nuclear weapons."

Netanyahu called on the entire international community, "or at least its responsible members," to follow Canada's "determined example and set moral and practical red lines in front of the Iranians, lines that will stop the Iranian race to obtain nuclear weapons."
