US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's comment Sunday that the US is "not
setting deadlines" for Iran could have the effect of putting the Islamic
Republic at ease, an Israeli government official said Monday
"Without a clear red line Iran will not cease its race toward a
nuclear weapon," said the official, commenting on Clinton's comments in an
interview with Bloomberg Radio Sunday evening.
"These sort of statements
will not stop Iran's centrifuges from spinning, unfortunately the opposite could
be true," the official said. "This won't deter Iran, but could put it at ease."
