Israeli Prime Minister Bennett declared at the Herzliya Conference that “Israel must maintain freedom of action and the ability to act in any situation and in any political circumstances.”
He continued, “We hope that the world will not tolerate Iran, we are facing a complicated period, and there may also be differences with the good people, even if there is a return to the nuclear agreement, Israel is of course not a party to the agreement and Israel is not bound by it. We will not repeat the mistake we made after the agreement.” The first nuclear in 2015.
The Israeli Prime Minister stated that “the Iranian regime is undergoing a process of erosion, is useless, and rules by barbaric force and intimidation.”

Bennett called for “widening the difference” with what he described as “enemies”, and for “increasing investment in missiles, cyber, lasers and various technologies.”

He pointed out that Iran had previously deterred from developing a nuclear weapon, when it was resolutely directed, calling for uniting efforts not to allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.
