Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that he is not optimistic that the international community will come together in order to put a stop to Iran's nuclear program, speaking with Israel Radio. The near future, however, following the impending release of an IAEA report on Tehran's nuclear program, presents the best opportunity for convincing the world to act against Iran.

Addressing the contents of the IAEA report, the contents of which have been leaked to various international newspapers in recent days, Barak said, "we've known these things for years."

"We know more [about Iran] than The Washington Post knows and we know more than the IAEA," he added.
