In a television interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said until Iran sees a “clear red line,” it will not stop its pursuit of nuclear arms.
The interview followed Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s decision to sever diplomatic ties with Iran.
Netanyahu called the decision a “clarion call to action,” saying it should serve as an example to the international community.
“I think everyone in Israel appreciates its forthright stand against a regime that brutalizes its own people, that colludes in the murder of tens of thousands in Syria, that denies the Holocaust, and calls for the eradication of the State of Israel, while pursuing an illicit program for developing nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told CBC.
“We have to build a wall, not of silence, but of condemnation and resolve,” he continued. “Canada just put a very big brick in that wall that is necessary for the peace of the world.”
In an earlier statement released Friday, Netanyahu thanked his Canadian counterpart for “taking a step that showed leadership and daring and that sends a clear message to Iran and the entire world.”
“One week after the display of anti-Semitism and hatred in Tehran, the government of Canada is taking a moral step of the highest order,” Netanyahu said, referring to the Non-Aligned Conference attended by 120 countries the first week in September.
“Canada’s determination is very important in order for the Iranians to understand that they cannot continue their race after nuclear weapons. This practical measure needs to serve as an example of international responsibility for the global community. It is important that the international community join in this pressure by setting Iran clear red lines,” the statement read.
