Israeli PM Netanyahu says Iran 'closer to bomb' red line

Washington, July 15 : Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Iran is getting 'closer and closer to the bomb', adding that he would not wait for too long in deciding whether to wage an attack on the nation aggressively pursuing nuclear capabilities.

He said that Iran was edging up to the red line, but haven't crossed it yet.

Netanyahu, during an interview on 'Face the Nation,' said that Iran was also building faster centrifuges that would enable them to jump the line within a few weeks.

According to CBS News, Netanyahu said Iran's new president, Hassan Rohani, has criticized his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for being 'a wolf in wolf's clothing'.

However, Netanyahu said that Rohani's strategy, though, is to 'be a wolf in sheep's clothing, smile and build a bomb'.

The Israeli PM said that on the part of the United States, it's important to stand by the administration's insistence that it won't tolerate a nuclear Iran, but also to make clear that military force 'is truly on the table,' the report said.

He said that Iran was building intercontinental ballistic missiles to reach the American mainland within a few years, adding that it did not need these missiles to reach Israel as they already had them.
