Abe and Bibi Share Tough Line on Their Neighbors – Toko Sekiguchi

A visit to Tokyo by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu highlighted how Japan and Israel share a common thread: They both feel a threat from neighbors’ nuclear ambitions, and they both have deep alliances with the U.S. “You’ve called North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles a clear and present danger, and I wholeheartedly share your assessment,” Netanyahu said to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday. “Those same words certainly apply to the Iranian nuclear program as well.”

“Like North Korea before it, Iran wants to keep its nuclear capabilities while easing the sanctions applied to it,” Netanyahu said. “We cannot let the ayatollahs win. We cannot enable the world’s foremost terrorist states to get the capabilities to make nuclear weapons.”  (Wall Street Journal)
