TEL AVIV, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an election victory speech on Wednesday, said preventing a nuclear-armed Iran would be the primary challenge of the new government he intends to form.

"The government we build will be based on three main principles. First of all, military strength in the face of the big challenges we face. The first challenge was and remains preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons," he said.
