The three series of talks between world powers and Iran lacked real results, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday.

"The Iranians continue enriching [uranium]," Netanyahu said. "They declared they will not backtrack from their plans even by a millimeter."

So far, the prime minister explained, enrichment is at three percent, enough for four bombs. Therefore, the world is asking Tehran to stop enrichment at 20%.

"Iran is showing contempt for the whole world, and plans to enrich beyond 20%," Netanyahu stated. "They do not see determination on the world powers' part to stop the nuclearization."
