Some people peddle “the absurd” nation that a nuclear-armed Iran might stabilize the Middle East, he says, ridiculing the notion.

He says he’s been warning about a nuclear Iran for years, but now the hour is getting late. “I speak about it now” he says, because when it comes to the future of his country, “it is my duty to speak.”

He says every world leader committed to peace must act. Iran is using diplomacy merely to buy time, he says. For over 7 years, the international community has introduced heavy sanctions, he says. “It’s had an effect… the Iranian economy has been hit hard… but we must face the truth: Sanctions have not stopped the Iranians’ nuclear program.”

In the past year, he says, Iran has doubled its centrifuges.

“There’s only one way to peacefully” prevent Iran getting the bomb — by placing “red lines” on its nuclear weapons program. “Red lines don’t lead to war. Red lines prevent war.”
