Israel's UN Ambassador, Ron Prosor, warned Wednesday against the continued advancement of Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Addressing a session of the Security Council, Prosor said that Iran's nuclear arms program is "hurtling forward at the speed of an express train, while the international community's attempts to stop it are advancing at the rate of a local bus."

"As the centrifuges in Iran continue to spin," he added, "the Iranian regime has the international spinning with lies and manipulations."

"Iran is the greatest threat to the region's stability," he stressed.

The former Head of Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, said Tuesday that "Iran has already crossed Israel's new 'red line'" regarding nuclear weapons development.
