TEL AVIV, October 20 (Itar-Tass) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called to intensify international pressure on Iran.
“I think that international pressure must stay in place until we see actions instead of words,” he said on Sunday at a weekly meeting of the government. “More to it, this pressure should be intensified to increase chances to make Iran stop its military nuclear programme.”
This week saw another round of negotiations between the Sextet countries and Iran, he noted and urged to bear in mind that Iran has deceived the international community systematically. “In 2006, Iran had 167 centrifuges, now, despite all the bans and promises, they have 18,000 centrifuges, which means that their number has increased by more than 100 times, whereas parties to the talks called to completely stop any uranium-enrichment activities,” he said.
He said that there was a threat of the Iranian regime’s winning international legitimacy so, in his words, the pressure should be continued.
