    During historic visit to Cyprus, PM says Iran 'most irresponsible force in the world'; signs search and rescue deal with President Christofias.

    According to the agreement, in the event of a disaster Israeli aircraft will be authorized to enter Cyprus' airspace, and vice versa. A similar agreement between the Jewish state and Turkey was revoked recently in light of heightened tensions between the countries.

    While in Nicosia, Netanyahu also addressed the Iranian nuclear threat, saying the sanctions imposed by the international community on the Islamic Republic "are not working."

    "Iran is the most irresponsible force in the world. I hope the sanctions will have an effect, but so far they have not. We are dealing with a regime that violates every resolution and has no respect for international standards," the Israeli premier said.

    "Iran's race towards nuclear weapons should concern the US and every other country. Nuclear arms in the hands of such a regime is a cause for great concern to the US and Israel."

    Of course sanctions aren't working. Sanctions hurt the population of a country, not the government.

    I'm surprised that Cyprus is accomodating Isreal, but it's good to see.

    I don't know if Israel has a choice.
    They can not let Iran develop Nukes.
