Iranian missiles could eventually reach US: Israeli PM Netanyahu
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In his latest warning about Iran's nuclear ambitions, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Iran was working on intercontinental ballistic missiles that could one day hit the United States.
"They're not developing those ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) for us. They can reach us with what they have. It's for you," he told CBS News.
"The American intelligence knows as well as we do that Iran is developing ICBMs not to reach Israel. They want to reach well beyond," he said on the network's This Morning programme.
The United States and other Western powers have shown an increased interest in engaging with Iran's new President Hassan Rouhani, although Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday that Teheran must first prove it is willing to end the stand-off over its nuclear programme.
