Discussing Iran’s nuclear program, Israel’s head of military intelligence indicated that “there is an enriched amount [of uranium] in volumes that we have not seen before and it is disturbing. At the same time, in all other aspects of the Iranian nuclear project, we see no progress… Not in the weapons project, in the financial area, not in any other sector. Therefore, the period of time that still remains of two years [for a weapon] has not changed”. “They are not heading toward a breakout”, he underscored. “They are not heading toward a bomb right now: It may be in the distant future… Let’s just agree with the fact that the right thing to do is to take Iran in the direction we want on the side of diplomacy: an attempt at a better agreement”.
