United Nations: Israel`s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday the only way to peacefully stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons is to combine tough sanctions with a credible military threat and that Israel was ready to stand alone in defending itself.

"Don`t let up the pressure (on Iran)," Netanyahu told the UN general assembly, adding that the only deal that could be made with Iran`s president Hassan Rouhani was one that "fully dismantles Iran`s nuclear weapons program."

"Rowhani is a wolf in sheep`s clothing. A wolf who thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of the international community. But like everyone else, I wish we could believe Rowhani`s words, but we must focus on Iran`s action," Netanyahu said.
