JVP Executive Director Rebecca Vilkomerson is available for interviews regarding speeches this week at the United Nations General Assembly by U.S. President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"You will not see next 25 years (...) With God's grace, nothing under the name of the Zionist regime will exist in the region by then", Khamenei said on Twitter.

Netanyahu praised Trump's support for Israel telling him: "Under your leadership, the alliance between America and Israel has never been stronger".

US President Donald Trump has called the accord "the worst deal ever negotiated" and has until mid-October to make a decision that could lead to Washington reimposing sanctions on Iran. "Historically, people say it can't happen; I say it can happen", the president added.

"Israel would like to see it, and I think the Palestinians would like to see it. I can say this in ways that people see, and in ways that people don't see", Netanyahu underlined, "so I want to thank you for that".

Turning to North Korea, Le Drian said that "very strong" pressure from sanctions would compel leader Kim Jong-Un to come to the negotiating table to put an end to his missile and nuclear programs.

"I look forward to discussing with you what you rightly call the awful nuclear deal with Iran and how to roll back Iran's growing aggression in the region, especially in Syria", he said.

Netanyahu mirrored that sentiment during Monday's meeting.

In March, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said that Iran remains a threat to Israel with or without the nuclear deal. According to Ha'aretz, several of the world powers who are party to the nuclear agreement were given the information. In June this year, there were anti-Israel rallies across Iran on Al-Quds Day, with protesters shouting slogans against the Jewish state and condemning the occupation of Palestine.
