Israel's position on Iran has not changed, despite recent Israeli media reports of a possible strike on Iran, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Friday.

"I propose we wait and see the IAEA report," he said, adding that he believes if they will be "daring enough to say bluntly what they know about [Iran's] nuclear program," the world will understand the Iranian threat is international.

Speaking in an interview with Stephen Sakur on the BBC, the minister repeated Israel's position that Iran must be prevented from obtaining nuclear weapons and no options should be taken off the table to that end.
