International pressure kept Iran from gaining nuclear weapons over the last two decades, and is the only thing keeping it from crossing the nuclear threshold now,   Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday in response to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's comment that threats against Iran will not work.

"Iran's president said that pressure won't work. Not true," Netanyahu said during a meeting with 36 Democratic US Congressman.

He said that the world needed to understand that the only thing that would keep the Iranians from moving forward now is "increased pressure."

"I have said that before, and I'll say it again, because that's important to understand.  You relent on the pressure, they will go all the way. You should sustain the pressure," he said.
