Top is the final stage of the current Iran nuclear bomb was successfully completed. Netanyahu wants to draw a red line with a marker between stages the second and final stages.
“Iran is still in the stage of 70 per cent and heading into the second stage. Next summer, on the level of enrichment (of uranium), they will be able to complete the enrichment of middle level and go to the final stage. From there there was only time for a few weeks before they managed to create a bomb in full, “explained Netanyahu, as quoted in ynetnews.com.
Netanyahu repeatedly insisted, time to stop Iran’s nuclear program is not much. The only way that using military force against Iran, according to him, should definitely be considered.
“I am convinced that by having a clear red line, Iran will–and this will be able to give much time to the ways of diplomacy and sanctions,” he said.
