As Iran nuclear talks extended, Iranian leader repeats threat to destroy Israel

( A day before U.S. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf confirmed on Tuesday that the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 nations will be extended at least until Friday, July 10, an Iranian leader reiterated the Islamic Republic’s desire for Israel to be “wiped off the map.”

“The presence of the Israeli regime is temporary,” Iranian Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani told the Hezbollah-linked Al Ahd news website. “Eventually one day this alien forged existence that has been forced into the body of an ancient nation and an historical region will be wiped off the map.”

Regarding the nuclear negotiations, Rafsanjani said that “even Tel Aviv knows well that Iran is not after acquiring nuclear weapons,” according the Iranian state news service IRNA. But he warned that the “Zionist” opposition to a nuclear deal serves “to keep Iran engaged in problems permanently, knowing that the Islamic Republic’s political, economic, cultural and propagation status will all improve after such an agreement.”
