Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said that harsh international economic sanctions against Iran, which Israel fears is developing a nuclear weapon to threaten it, have started to have an effect.

In an interview in Saturday's The Australian newspaper, Netanyahu said: "For the first time I see Iran wobble ... under the sanctions that have been adopted and especially under the threat of strong sanctions on their central bank."

An official in Netanyahu's office confirmed to Reuters the accuracy of the quotes in the interview that was conducted on Tuesday.

Iran has come under increased pressure since the United Nations' nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), reported in November that Tehran appeared to have worked on designing a nuclear weapon and that secret research to that end may be continuing.
