WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that nuclear weapons could fall into the wrong hands of a “murderous” regime if the international community lifts sanctions on Iran without ensuring the guaranteed end to uranium enrichment.

“When a murderous regime engages in soft diplomacy and uses calming words of peace, but nevertheless continues to acquire immense power — it must be stopped, immediately,” Netanyahu said according to The Times Of Israel.

Netanyahu spoke during a series of interviews Thursday just ahead of the new round of talks in Geneva taking place next week. The talks are between the P5+1 powers and Iran over its rogue nuclear program.

“This is the central lesson of the 20th century. It’s also the central lesson of North Korea. If [the Iranian regime] is not stopped immediately, there won’t be just two bombs pointed toward you [the Europeans], but 200. Stop it now while you’re in a strong position to do so,” Netanyahu stated.

The Times Of Israel also reported that Netanyahu urged the Europeans to “be strict, be strong, be consistent.  The Iranian regime has vast ambitions and limitless aggression. It is an active player in the mass-murder in Syria. It enables [the Syrian civil war] to happen through its support of Assad. It conducts terror acts across five continents, in 25 cities over the last three years. It violates every decision of the [UN] Security Council related to ending enrichment.”

Netanyahu added that Tehran will get everything they want if the sanctions are eased.

“Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you. It’s important to emphasize that this isn’t an Israeli issue. It’s also your concern,” Netanyahu continued further.

Over the past few weeks, negotiations between the US and Iran have been taking place over its nuclear program and sanctions imposed by Western powers.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Iran offered to limit its production of nuclear fuel in exchange for an easing of international sanctions.
