Iran received a five-week gift from the world powers at Saturday's talks in Istanbul, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday in Israel's first formal reaction to the negotiations between Iran and the P5+1.

"My first impression is that Iran received a gift," Netanyahu said, referring to the fact that the second round of talks won't be held until May 23 in Baghdad.

Iran, he said, now has "five weeks during which it can continue to enrich [uranium] without any limit. I think that Iran has to immediately halt all its enrichment, remove the [already] enriched material, and dismantle the nuclear facility at Qom."

Netanyahu, in comments made before meeting with US Senator Joe Lieberman, said the world's biggest enabler of terrorists must not have the ability to develop a nuclear bomb.
