Following an IAEA Board of Governors meeting whose agenda included “safeguard matters in the Islamic Republic of Iran”, Prime Minister Netanyahu contended that “a year ago, speaking at the UN, I exposed Iran's secret nuclear warehouse in Turquzabad… The IAEA now confirms that Iran lied. And that Iran continues to lie. Everything I told you a year ago has now been confirmed by the IAEA. The IAEA has confirmed that Iran has been violating the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran continues to hide its secret nuclear weapons program”. “It's time for the nations of the world to resist Iran's aggression and terror”, Netanyahu added, stressing that “it's time to snap back sanctions. It's time to pressure Iran until it changes its ways. Iran must stop attacking the nations of the Middle East. Iran must stop threatening to destroy Israel. Europe must stop stalling. It must act against Iranian aggression now”.
