Former IDF chief of staff Gabi Askenazi on Wednesday addressed the best path for deterring Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons during an appearance at the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center.

“The best course of action is to go with sanctions,” he said. “It’s less costly than all the other options.”

He added, “I think it’s a very promising direction while keeping all the options on the table.”
