Jerusalem, Sep. 27 (ANI): Israel thinks that the revelation of a clandestine uranium enrichment site in Iran will trigger the international community to act more forcefully to prevent the Islamic republic from developing nuclear weapons.
"The free world has reached the last opportunity for engagement with Iran. We believe many Western countries now see that the Iranian mask is slipping," The Jerusalem Post quoted a senior Israeli official, as saying.
On Saturday, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman urged immediate action by the international community to "overthrow the mad regime of Teheran."
"This ends the dispute over whether Iran is developing military nuclear power or not, and therefore world powers need to draw conclusions. Without a doubt it is a reactor for military purposes, not peaceful ones," said Lieberman.
Earlier, a senior Obama administration official revealed that the US and its five partners - France, Russia, the UK, Germany and China - plan to tell Teheran at a meeting in Geneva on Thursday that it must provide "unfettered access" to its previously secret Qom enrichment facility within weeks.
The six major powers also will present a so-called transparency package covering all of Iran's nuclear activities, the official said.
The countries will demand full access for the International Atomic Energy Agency to any and every site, notebooks, computers and documents related to nuclear development, and all scientists. (ANI)
