Report: Barak, Canadian counterpart to discuss Iran strike

November 13, 2011 10:34

Canadian Defense Minister Peter MacKay intends to ask Defense Minister Ehud Barak about reports that Israel is planning a strike on Iran's nuclear program, Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail reported on Sunday morning.

Speaking with reporters in Afghanistan, MacKay explained that “dynamics have changed and will continue to change” amid growing international concern surrounding the Islamic Republic's efforts at nuclear weapon development.

Barak, scheduled to visit Canada next week, said in an interview with Israel Radio last week that he is not optimistic that the international community has the will to come together in order to put a stop to Iran's nuclear program.
