Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said it is not enough for Iran to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent on Tuesday night at the Institute for National Security Studies.

Uranium enriched to 3.5% is "a lower number, but a large proportion of the uranium" that Iran possesses and which could be used for a bomb is enriched to 3.5%.

In essence, Netanyahu argued that removing 20% enriched uranium would reduce the quality of Iran's uranium, but that when it comes to producing uranium for a bomb, quantity is very important.
