JERUSALEM, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Israel will not be bound by any future nuclear deal between world powers and Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Monday.

Addressing the parliament's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Bennett said, "It is important for me to say and clarify unequivocally: Israel is not a party to the agreements, Israel is not bound by what will be written in the agreements if they are signed."

He stressed that "Israel will continue to maintain full freedom of action, anywhere and anytime, without restrictions" if the agreements are signed.

Bennett said Israel is concerned about the talks in Vienna, where negotiators have been trying to restore the 2015 nuclear deal.

As a vocal opponent of the nuclear deal, Israel insists that Iran has been secretly seeking to obtain nuclear weapons despite Iran's repeated statements that its nuclear program is peaceful.
