Benjamin Netanyahu branded the Iranian President's UN speech "cynical" and said that Iran was buying time to develop nuclear weapons capability.
"It was a cynical speech full of hypocrisy," Netanyahu said in a statement.
"It had no practical suggestion to stop Iran's military nuclear programme and no commitment to fulfil U.N. Security Council decisions. That exactly is the Iranian plan, to talk and buy time in order to advance Iran's capability to obtain nuclear weapons."
Iran denies it is trying to build nuclear weapons and says its programme is for peaceful purposes.
