US defense secretary on Iran: Netanyahu legitimately concerned
US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel discussed the Iranian issue with the Bloomberg website and said: "I think Prime Minister Netanyahu is legitimately concerned, as any prime minister of Israel has been, about the future security needs of their country.”

 

“It’s true that sanctions - not just US sanctions but UN sanctions, multilateral sanctions - have done tremendous economic damage. Even many of Iran’s leaders have acknowledged that. And I think that Iran is responding to the constant pressure from Israel. I think all of this, combined, probably brought the Iranians to where we are today," he added. (Ynet)
