Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that "the biggest threat in the Middle East is Iran’s aggression,” during an impromptu interview with NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell.

“Iran is an aggressive regime,” that “is bent on destroying Israel,” said Netanyahu, who was in Warsaw, Poland attending a two-day conference on Middle East peace.

“They say so openly, while they deny the Holocaust, they're preparing another holocaust,” he said. “Secondly, what they're doing is, for many, aggression, terrorism, sabotage, subversion in every single country in the Middle East. I would say this to our European friends and to others, when Arabs and Israelis are saying the same thing and agreeing with one another, pay attention, something important is happening, and something important happened here in Warsaw.”

Netanyahu added that Iran “has to be countered and it has to be countered now,” and when asked if he would support a change of regime, the prime minister replied: “I don’t rule anything out.”

“If we learned anything from the history of the 20th century it’s that if you have a fanatical, ideological regime that arms itself and begins to gobble up its neighbors, the only way you're going to stop it is by confronting it,” he continued.

“If you don't confront it, as in any form of human aggression, it just expands. So confronting it is what was done here today. How do you confront it? You confront it first of all with economic means. The United States pulled out of the Iran deal, slapped very powerful sanctions. And the Europeans should join this effort rather than try to circumvent it.”
