Israeli President Shimon Peres said on Monday “all options” are being kept open in forcing Iran to give up its nuclear program.
Speaking at The Hague, Peres said the economic sanctions against Iran now have not dissuaded the country from enriching uranium or building long-range missiles, although it may have affected Tehran’s public statements. He added it would be better if sanctions did stop Iran from being “a center of terror, but all options are otherwise being kept.”
“The Syrians were forced this time by an agreement between the United States and Russia to give up their chemical arsenal,” he said. “They didn’t do it before the world threatened them with the military option.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is slated to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House Monday. At the meeting, Netanyahu is expected to ask that international sanctions on Iran not be lifted.
