Only a "significant and tangible threat" to Iran will halt Tehran's nuclear program, Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Saturday, following P5+1's failure to end the stalemate in nuclear talks in Kazakhstan.

"This failure was predictable. Israel has already warned that the Iranians are exploiting the talks in order to play for time while making additional progress in enriching uranium for an atomic bomb," the minister for strategic and intelligence affairs and international relations said.

"Israel believes that without a significant and tangible threat, including a short timetable, it is clear that achieving the dismantling of the nuclear project will not be possible," Steinitz added.

He called on Western countries "to take a more assertive stand and make it unequivocally clear to the Iranians that the negotiations games have run their course."
