Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged world powers on Monday to step up sanctions against Iran swiftly should it go through with a plan to exceed an enriched uranium limit set by a 2015 nuclear deal.

Locked in a stand-off with Washington after the Trump administration withdrew from the nuclear agreement، Tehran said earlier on Monday it would breach internationally agreed curbs on its low-enriched uranium stock in 10 days.

“Should Iran deliver on its current threats، and violate the nuclear deal، the international community will have to implement، immediately، the pre-set sanctions mechanism، what is called ‘snapback sanctions’،” Netanyahu said in a speech.

“In any event، Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weaponry،” Netanyahu added، reiterating a long-standing، if veiled، threat to take pre-emptive military action.

Iran denies seeking nuclear weaponry.
