In contrast to Obama’s claim, PM points out report that Iran’s stockpile of uranium is increasing

A day after US President Barack Obama told the Israeli public in his Channel 2 interview that Iran’s stockpile of very highly enriched uranium “is gone,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that in fact it is precisely those stockpiles that are increasing and very threatening to Israel.

"There are reports now that Iran continues to grow its nuclear stockpile as the negotiations proceed," Netanyahu said at the opening of a meeting with visiting New Zealand Prime Minister Murray McCully.

Netanyahu said if this development is added together with Iran’s continued development of long range ballistic missiles, its world wide terrorist web, its support for rocket attacks on Israel, its activities in Yemen, and the fact that it violates all Security Council resolutions dealing with it, then it all amounts to a serious peace and security challenge in the region.
