“We are fighting all over the world in regards to Iran’s nuclear program,” he said at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs headquarters in Jerusalem.

Without elaborating, he added that “we also visit there periodically … to ‘catch up.’ ”

Earlier this year, Netanyahu gave a presentation regarding Iran lying about its nuclear program, presenting 100,000 documents Israel smuggled out of the Islamic Republic.
