Israel wants Iran to halt uranium enrichment

Israel wants Iran to halt uranium enrichmentJerusalem, June 19 - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that his country would not accept anything less than the total halt of Iranian uranium enrichment.

"We cannot accept anything less than a total cessation of all enrichment of nuclear materials at all levels, removal of all enriched nuclear material and a closure of Iran's illicit nuclear facilities," reported Xinhua citing Netanyahu during a meeting with Canadian foreign minister John Baird.

"Until Iran meets these demands, pressure must be stepped up and Iranian nuclear programme must be stopped," Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu warned that the new Iranian President Hasan Rowhani, is just trying to buy more time through diplomacy. "He (Rowhani) said that by calming the international community Iran is able to steadily move forward in its nuclear weapons programme," Netanyahu said. (IANS)
