“I’m concerned, gravely concerned, that this deal will go through and in one stroke of the pen, it will reduce the sanctions on Iran — sanctions that took years to put in place -- and in return for this, Iran gives practically nothing,” Netanyahu said.

“It’s clear that this agreement is good only for Iran and that it’s really bad for the rest of the world,” he said. “Iran’s dream deal is the world’s nightmare,” he said.

On his return to Jerusalem, Hollande will address the Israeli parliament in a speech aimed at reaffirming France’s commitment to Israel’s security.

Netanyahu will fly to Russia tomorrow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as part of his drive to prevent world leaders from handing Iran “the deal of the century” by easing the sanctions.

He will also discuss the matter in Jerusalem with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday.
