MOSCOW, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday called for “paralysing sanctions” against Iran’s energy sector, Interfax news agency reported.
“They should be paralysing sanctions,” Interfax quoted Netanyahu as saying through a Russian translator in an interview. Netanyahu is in Moscow to try to convince Russia to back strong sanctions against Iran.
Netanyahu said the sanctions should halt Iran’s oil exports and prevent the Islamic Republic from importing petrol. (Reporting by Conor Humphries, editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
