Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met on Friday with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi.
In their meeting, Bennett emphasized the danger of continuing Iranian advancement toward a nuclear weapon, while misleading the international community by using false information and lies. He also emphasized the "urgent need for the international community to move against Iran by any means to prevent it from achieving weapon capabilities."
The prime minister has made it clear that "Israel prefers the diplomatic path to deprive Iran of any possibility of developing nuclear weapons, but nevertheless reserves the right to self-defense and act against Iran to contain its nuclear program if the international community fails in the relevant time period."
