Netanyahu: Iran can now jump from 3.5pc to weapons grade uranium

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the debate over whether Iran should be allowed to produce 20-percent enriched uranium is no longer relevant because the Iranians have advanced to a capacity to jump directly from 3.5 pc to 90 pc – i.e. weapons grade – enrichment.

Regarding the ongoing negotiations with the Palestinians, Netanyahu said Israel desires a settlement, but will hold out for the satisfaction of its vital interests, especially security.
