Israel is determined to do “whatever it takes” to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons

Israel is ready to do “whatever it takes” to void Iran’s efforts to acquire nuclear weapons, the Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi told journalists after a summit on regional stability in Cyprus.

This statement comes as Iran announced that met its 60% uranium enrichment goal. Iran notified, on Tuesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency about its intention to enrich uranium at 60%.

Last week, the JCPOA Joint Commission resumed meetings in Vienna, with the first one resulting in the creation of two expert-level working groups to address nuclear-linked challenges and the lifting of US sanctions against Iran.

The Iranian nuclear deal committed the nation to enriching uranium using only first-generation IR-1 centrifuges at the underground fuel enrichment plant (FEP) in Natanz. However, since the United States quit the agreement and restored sanctions on Iran, the country started gradually to relax its adherence to the JCPOA’s terms.

On Thursday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the Islamic Republic is capable of enriching uranium to 90% if necessary, but would only use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and not to make nuclear weapons.
