Israel will have to up security spending to counter Iran, PM says

Speaking to the Jewish leaders about Israel’s security challenges, which he says come from Iran, Netanyahu says Israel will need to increase the amount of money it spends on arms.

“We have to change our priorities,” he says, noting that the next government will have the difficult task of spearheading efforts to transfer funding from civilian to military purposes.

Standing alongside Netanyahu, US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin pledges to increase economic sanctions against Iran.

He says the administration’s “maximum pressure campaign” is halting Iranian aggression.

Mnuchin is heading a delegation to the Middle East and India to discuss economic ties and counterterrorism initiatives.

He is joined by US President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Mnuchin says American sanctions aim to force Iran to stop “their bad activities and exporting terrorism, looking to create nuclear capabilities, and missiles.”
