JERUSALEM -- Israel's prime minister says he has voiced his "strong opposition" to the world's framework nuclear agreement with Iran to President Barack Obama.
In a phone conversation with the president, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a final deal based on this agreement "would threaten the survival of Israel."
He said the deal would legitimize Iran's nuclear program and increase Iranian "aggression and terror."
Netanyahu urged the world to increase pressure on Iran until a better deal is achieved.
