Bennett: “Israel will do everything to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons”

Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, Referring today (Friday) to a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency, published earlier this week on the Iranian nuclear issue, saying that “Israel takes very seriously the picture reflected in the report, which proves that Iran continues to lie to the world And promote a nuclear weapons development program, while denying its international commitments. “Iran must never have the ability to produce nuclear weapons.”

Bennett later called for an international response: “I call for an appropriate and swift international response to Iran’s serious actions. purpose. Only a firm stance on the part of the international community, backed by decisions and actions, can bring about a change of direction on the part of the regime in Tehran, which has lost all restraint. Israel will do everything to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons “.

As you may recall, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) demanded explanations from Iran, after about 10 kilograms of 60% enriched uranium were found at three of the undeclared nuclear sites.

“The Secretary-General is concerned about the failure of security at the undeclared nuclear sites, which were not reported to the Agency,” the IAEA said in a report to the agency’s member states. .

The classified reports submitted by the IAEA Director General, Raphael Grossi For the member states of the agency, it will be discussed at a meeting that is expected to be held next week among the representatives of the 35 countries. Iranian envoy to nuclear talks in Vienna, Kazem Aribabadi Addressing the IAEA’s claims, he clarified: “The Agency must maintain neutrality, independence and professionalism.”

This report joins the agency’s warning about a month ago that Iran has embarked on a path leading to nuclear weapons production – and continues to advance at full speed.

Iran produces 60% enriched uranium in a new operational array at the Natanz nuclear center, and it has put into use two “waterfalls” of advanced hubs, in one place so far. An experiment in this session was conducted for several days during the month of April.

By mid-April, Iran had produced enriched uranium to a level of 20%, which is a significant deviation from the nuclear agreement, which allowed it to be enriched to a level of only 3.67%. In order to produce a nuclear bomb, 90% enriched uranium is needed, and from the current level the road there is relatively short, even if it requires the execution of some early stages.
