Iran and six world powers including the United States have set a November 24 deadline for a deal that would eliminate fears Iran could develop nuclear weapons and lead to the removal of U.N. and Western sanctions againt Tehran.
Netanyahu said: "It's obvious that Iran wants to remove the sanctions that have had such a devastating impact on its economy, but it should be equally obvious that Iran is not prepared to dismantle its nuclear weapons program in return."
He said that "the alternative to a bad deal is not war."
Iran says its nuclear program is for exclusively peaceful purposes including power generation.
