Iran, Israel Continue to go Back and Forth on Nuclear Activity
As Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reiterated that the country “will never ever suspend our nuclear activities,” Israeli Benjamin Netanyahu has not ruled out military action against the country.
Ali Asghar Soltanieh insisted that Iran is only conducting nuclear research for the purpose of energy development. However, the IAEA’s director general, Yukiya Amano, said that, “Iran is not telling us everything.”
Netanyahu said that the timing of a strike on Iran “is not a matter of days or weeks,” but also “not a matter of years.” While Israel would welcome a peaceful resolution to the issue, “if I do not make the right decision, there may be no one left to explain to [why I made the wrong choice],” he said.
