Isreeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urges P5+1 countries to increase the sanctions imposed on Iran if Iran won't dismantle its nuclear reactor ahead of next round of nuclear talks to be held in Geneva on November 20.

"If Iran won't dismantle its nuclear reactor now with all the pressure, when you reduce the sanctions, do you think you will get a better deal tomorrow? This is a mistake, a terrible mistake, a historic error," said Netanyahu.

Netanyahu told Germany's Bild newspaper that Iran's nuclear program "needs to be prevented."

The international powers are concerned that Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon but Iran says its program is peaceful.

The negotiations between Iran and the permanent members of the UN Security Council, also known as P5+1, will continue on November 20 in Geneva.

Iran must dismantle its nuclear reactors, Netanyahu reiterated adding "if they refuse to do so, keep the pressure up when its economy is troubled by the sanctions "

The P5+1 would make a terrible mistake by reducing sanctions, he claimed. "Strengthening the sanctions may lead to a better deal," he added.
