In the wake of the conclusion of nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that the Tel Aviv regime will not "be bound by this deal."

'Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran, because Iran continues to seek our destruction,' said Netanyahu in reaction to the final statement of the marathon talks in Vienna on Tuesday.

Israel has for months been engaged in attempts to block the efforts for the conclusion of nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany.

Netanyahu, who was speaking in English, said what happened at the United Nations building in Vienna was 'a stunning historic mistake,' adding it gives Iran 'every incentive not to change.'

He again repeated his previous claims that Iran would continue to seek nuclear weapons.

Reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has time and again verified Iran's assertion that the country has never pursued a military dimension in its nuclear program.

Earlier in the day, Netanyahu attacked the conclusion of talks by saying, 'Far-reaching concessions were made in areas that were supposed to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.'

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was finally announced on Tuesday in the ritzy Palais Coburg Hotel in the Austrian capital, following a time span of over a fortnight.

According to Iranian officials, the JCPOA will be presented to the United Nations Security Council, which will adopt a resolution in seven to 10 days making the JCPOA an official document.
