Ehud Barak 311 (R).
Minister Ehud Barak said that he is not optimistic that the
international community has the will to come together in order to put a
Iran's nuclear program, in an interview with Israel Radio Tuesday.
Nonetheless, the short period of time following the impending release of an Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) report on Tehran's
nuclear program presents the best opportunity for convincing the world
to act against Iran.While the defense minister said he was not
optimistic about any international action against Iran, specifically
"deadly sanctions" targeting its financial institutions as well as
physical sanctions, "I hope it will happen," he said.
