Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Monday reiterated that Iran's nuclear program must be stopped, at a Friends of the Israel Defense Forces event in Chicago.

At the tribute, attended by over 900 guests and which raised more than NIS 5 million for the welfare of Israeli soldiers, Ya'alon stressed that "the free world, led by the US, must not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons," and urged the West to "make clear that all options are on the table, including the military option, if diplomacy fails" to curb Iran's nuclear progress.

Ya'alon concluded by stressing that "Israel has the right, as well as the capability, to defend itself" against any threat.
