Netanyahu Demands Iran Halt all Uranium Enrichment


Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu focused on the Iranian government at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. "In another week-and-a-half or so I will travel to the UN General Assembly," Prime Minister Netanyahu stated. "I will first meet with US President Barack Obama. I intend to focus on the issue of stopping Iran's nuclear program. The way to stop Iran's nuclear program requires four steps: 1. Halting all uranium enrichment; 2. Removing all enriched uranium; 3. Closing Qom; and 4. Stopping the plutonium track. Only a combination of these four steps will constitute an actual stopping of the nuclear program, and until all four of these measures are achieved, the pressure on Iran must be increased and not relaxed, and certainly not eased. I believe that the events of recent weeks have confirmed the assumptions upon which we have been acting," stated Netanyahu.
