March 8, 2012 20:42

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the timeline of a potential attack against Iran in an excerpt of a Channel Two interview aired Thursday, saying an attack would not come in "a matter of days or weeks, but its also not a matter of years."

Netanyahu emphasized that an attack against Iran is not a foregone conclusion, and that a diplomatic solution to the threat of Iran's nuclear program may still be found.

"I hope that the pressure on Iran will work and we can peacefully convince them to tear down their nuclear program," the prime minister stated.

Netanyahu admitted that having to decide whether to launch a military strike against Iran was a great responsibility, saying that if the correct decision was not taken, there might not be a future generation to which he would have to explain his decision-making process.
