Israeli FM: Iran’s nuclear actions necessitate immediate international response

With Iran moving to limit some UN inspections of its nuclear facilities, Israel’s foreign minister says its actions threaten regional stability and calls for an immediate international response.

“Iran is crushing the last vestiges of oversight by the International Atomic Energy Agency and continues to challenge and threaten regional stability,” Gabi Ashkenazi says in a statement.

“Iran’s extreme steps necessitate an immediate international response,” he says.  “The Iranian policy is a statement of intentions as to its desire to continue to clandestinely develop nuclear capabilities.”
