Netanyahu arrives in the British capital Tuesday for talks with Pompeo, and will spend two days meeting with world leaders, pressing them about Iran and its recent withdrawal from commitments to honor its nuclear agreements.
In addition to Pompeo, the prime minister plans to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s President Emmanuel Macron, as well as other leaders.
Netanyahu’s visit to Britain comes one day after he slammed European countries seeking to circumvent U.S. trade sanctions against Iran by avoiding use of the dollar, as Breitbart News reported.
He says the countries were enabling Iran to develop nuclear weapons by enabling it to transact with the rest of the world.
“It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran’s regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said last November.
While the Iranian regime kills its own people, bombs Saudi Arabia’s oil installations, and rushes to enrich uranium for nuclear weapons, European countries rush to appease Iran with even more concessions.
