Israeli premier Ehud Olmert’s spokesman, Mark Regev, said on Friday that the diplomatic efforts to exert pressure on Iran to give up its uranium enrichment have so far been insufficient.
“It is clear that additional steps will have to be taken,” he continued.
“We are on the same page. We both see the threat… And we both understand that tangible action is required to prevent the Iranians from moving forward on a nuclear weapon,” said the Israeli spokesman.
Regev then claimed that ‘leaders of many countries’ have discussed the prospects of using military force against Iran and affirmed that Israel agrees with the ‘options on the table’, hinting at a war against the Middle Eastern country.
“I have said Iran is dangerous, and the NIE estimate doesn’t do anything to change my opinion about the danger Iran poses to the world – quite the contrary,” Bush has said in response to the release of the US National Intelligence Estimate.
