PM: Talks Mark Extension for Iranian Uranium Enrichment


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Sunday afternoon, that the start of talks in Turkey about Iran's nuclear development program marked an extension of time for the Tehran government to enrich uranium.

Speaking at the beginning of a meeting with visiting United States Senator Joe Lieberman, Netanyahu said, "My initial impression is that Iran has been given a 'freebie.'  It has got five weeks to continue enrichment without any limitation, any inhibition.  I think Iran should take immediate steps to stop all enrichment, take out all enrichment material and dismantle the nuclear facility in Qom.  I believe that the world's greatest practitioner of terrorism must not have the opportunity to develop atomic bombs."
