Israel, Egypt Pushed US to Bomb Iran Before Deal

Former US secretary of state, John Kerry, said on Wednesday both Israel and Egypt pushed the United States to "bomb Iran" before the 2015 nuclear deal was reached. Kerry was defending the deal during a forum in Washington. He said kings and foreign presidents told the US that bombing was the only language Iran would understand. But Kerry said that was "a trap" in many ways, because the same countries would have publicly criticized the US if it bombed. The former US statesman said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was "genuinely agitating toward action", AP reported. Kerry said he does not know whether Iran would pursue a nuclear weapon in 10 to 15 years after restrictions in the deal are removed, but he said it was the best deal the US could get. Tehran says its nuclear work has no military aspects and is only for civilian purposes.
