Also in his conversations with the British ambassador this week, the President Rivlin said that at a time when Iran is rightfully receiving the overseas humanitarian aid it needs in light of the situation from some members of the international community, it continues to sow terrorism in Lebanon and Syria and to accelerate its nuclear program. President Rivlin emphasised that the State of Israel will not permit this reality, even in the current circumstances.
