It will be interesting to see how the Israeli government reacts to this announcement,
given that their Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has taken quite a hard line on the issue,
even going as far as to call renewed nuclear talks with Iran a “trap.”
he claimed that the only viable solution would be to completely remove any and all nuclear materials from Iran,
which is hardly justified seeing as they are not even pursuing military applications for their nuclear technology.
Recently the Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh
stated in an interview with Fox News
that Iran has “has not been pursuing a nuclear weapon”
Iran “will never, ever suspend our activities, including [uranium] enrichment,”
according to Press TV.
