Iran has not yet crossed the red line that Israel set on its nuclear program, and Israel remains determined to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday.

Netanyahu was speaking at the last session of the annual year-end meeting in the foreign ministry for Israel's ambassadors abroad.

During a speech at the UN in September, Netanyahu drew a red line on a picture of a bomb signifying when Tehran would be 90% on the way to development of a bomb, meaning before it had acquired enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear detonator if it so decided. He said that Iran would not likely pass that line until the spring or summer.

"Iran remains the number one threat," Netanyahu said, adding that there was a chance for positive change if Iran was prevented from getting a nuclear weapon.
