Israel PM Netanyahu criticises Iran 'deal of the century'

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed his anger as negotiations on Iran's nuclear programme are expected to reach a breakthrough.

World powers, the five permanent Security Council members plus Germany (P5+1) and Iran, have been meeting in Geneva.

The US has confirmed that some sanctions relief was being offered in return for "concrete, verifiable measures" on Iran's uranium enrichment programme.

Mr Netanyahu said a deal would be a mistake and Israel would not be bound by it.

"I understand that the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva - as well they should be, because they got everything and paid nothing.

"So Iran got the deal of the century and the international community got a bad deal, this is a very bad deal. Israel utterly rejects it."
