Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said that diplomacy has so far failed to deter Iran from pursuing its nuclear programme, warning it was getting closer to crossing a crucial “red line.”
“Iran enriches more and more uranium, it installs faster and faster centrifuges,” and it is “running out the clock” on diplomatic efforts to prevent the Islamic republic from obtaining nuclear capability, Netanyahu said on Monday.
“We have to stop its nuclear enrichment programme before it’s too late,” he warned in a speech via satellite from his office in Israel to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the largest pro-Israel lobby in the US.
The Israeli prime minister warned that leaders in Tehran had opted to “just grit their teeth” through punishing international sanctions and pursue their nuclear plan, come what may.
