Liberman: Plan to expand nuclear enrichment shows Tehran ‘panicking’

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman says the order given by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to increase its nuclear enrichment capacity is a sign of the “hysteria and panic” within the government.

But, he goes on to say, Iran is a global problem, not only Israel’s. “We see Iranian subversion not only against the State of Israel, but also in Yemen, Bahrain, the Gulf and Lebanon, so it’s a regional threat.

“Anyone that has been paying attention in the last few months to the leaders of Saudi Arabia… I sound like a dove of peace compared to them,” he adds.
