Israeli leader calls for 'clear red line' on Iran
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's prime minister is urging the international community to get tougher against Iran, saying that without a "clear red line" Teheran will not halt its nuclear programme.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday that Iran does not see international determination to stop its nuclear activities.
The United Nations (UN) nuclear agency last week concluded that Iran has expanded its nuclear activity at a heavily fortified underground site and effectively shut down inspections of a separate site suspected of being used for weapons-related experiments.
Israel has threatened to attack Iran if it believes international sanctions and diplomacy are failing to curb Teheran's disputed nuclear programme. Iran says its programme is solely for peaceful purposes. Mr Netanyahu's latest comments reflect Israel's stance that time for military action is quickly running out.
