The deal under negotiation between the six world powers and Iran would still leave it the capacity to produce dozens of nuclear bombs, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Monday.

The agreement that is emerging now between the P5+1 countries - the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain, France and Germany - is unacceptable to Israel, Netanyahu said.

It “is dangerous for Israel, the region and the world,” he said as he explained that under its terms Iran would remain a nuclear threshold state.

“It leaves Iran with the ability to produce the material needed to produce a nuclear bomb within a few months, and later, it could produce dozens of nuclear bombs,” Netanyahu said.

“Israel strongly objects to this,” he said.
