Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Sunday that Israel was making preparations for the day after the agreement emerging from the Vienna nuclear talks, which he said appears to be “shorter and weaker” than the previous deal and would allow Tehran to build “stadiums of advanced centrifuges” when it lapses. Bennett said that the original 2015 deal covered a period of ten years and would have expired in 2025, and that the potential new deal would only be in effect for two and a half years.

“Two things have happened since the original signing — the Iranians have made great strides in building their enrichment capabilities, and time has passed,” Bennett said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. The premier said that under the new agreement, Iran would be permitted to build “stadiums of advanced centrifuges without restrictions” after the deal lapses in two and a half years if it is signed without an extension of the expiration date. “We are organizing and preparing for the day after, in all ways, so that we can maintain the security of the citizens of Israel on our own,” Bennett said.
