Barak: IAEA reports show need for effective int'l pressure on Iran

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday referred to two recent International Atomic Energy Agency reports which found that samples taken from a Syrian site suspected of being a secretly built reactor revealed new traces of processed uranium, and that Iran's efforts to expand its uranium enrichment program had significantly slowed down. "The IAEA report about the Iranian nuclear activity and the results of the tests it carried out on the nuclear reactor that was bombed in Dir al-Zur illustrate again the need for effective international pressure in order to stop Iran's nuclear program and the importance of Israel's stance that no option should be removed from the table," he said.
