Iran should be `stopped` like Gaddafi: Israeli PM
Netanyahu says Iran`s government should be ``stopped`` like Gaddafi`s regime in Libya.
Moscow: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Iran`s government should be ``stopped`` like Gaddafi`s regime in Libya. Netanyahu said in remarks televised that Iran`s nuclear ambitions and ``dreams of world supremacy`` pose an immediate threat to global security.
He told the Vesti television channel that ``if we have to tame Gaddafi, we have to stop Tehran`s regime in the same way.`` Netanyahu arrived in Moscow Thursday, a day after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev welcomed his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas.
Observers believe their visits are aimed at overcoming the obstacles in the Palestinian-Israeli talks. Russia, the United States, the European Union and the United Nations make up the Quartet of Mideast mediators.
