Netanyahu: A good deal strips Iran of ability to make fissile material for nuclear bomb

November 17, 2013 21:23

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that tough Western measures must not only remain in place but be strengthened until Iran dismantles its entire uranium enrichment program, arguing that anything less would enable it to develop nuclear bombs.

"A good deal is a deal that strips Iran of capabilities for preparing fissile material for a nuclear bomb," he said at a news conference with French President Francois Hollande.

"These capabilities are the centrifuges, which are being used for this purpose, not for the purpose of peaceful nuclear energy, and the dismantling of the plutonium reactors, heavy water, which are also being used exclusively for preparing a nuclear bomb," Netanyahu said.
