Netanyahu to continue vocal opposition, despite Obama gaining enough votes to secure deal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has argued fiercely against the Iran nuclear deal, will continue to speak out strongly against it even though US President Barack Obama on Wednesday secured the 34th vote needed to sustain a presidential veto.

“The prime minister has a responsibility to speak out against the deal that threatens this country, the region and the world,” one government official said. “And he will continue to do so.”

Despite US Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) providing Obama with the vote necessary to prevent an override of his veto if Congress votes to turn down the deal, the official said the accord “remains a dangerous deal, and it remains important to continue to point that out."
