With the June 30 deadline for a nuclear deal between the world powers and Iran quickly approaching, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet Sunday that the deal looks worse with each passing day.

"Iran has announced that it will not allow surprise visits at its military installations on the nuclear issue,” he said. “It has also backtracked from other issues that were seemingly agreed upon in the Lausanne agreement. Regretfully, the reports arriving from the major powers attest to an acceleration of their concessions in the face of this Iranian obduracy.”

Netanayhu said that from Israel's standpoint the agreeent being formulated looked bad from the outset, and now “from day to day it seems to be getting worse.” He said, however, it was not too late to “take stock,” reject the current deal on the table and insist on a better one.
