Set clear red lines on Iran, Netanyahu tells world

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the international community to set a “clear red line” for Iran.

Netanyahu, in remarks Sept. 2 at the Israeli Cabinet’s regular Sunday meeting, did not say what the red line should be.

 “The international community is not setting Iran a clear red line and Iran does not see international determination to stop its nuclear project. Until Iran sees a clear red line and such determination, it will not stop,” Netanyahu said.

On Sept. 3, the New York Times reported that the United States is moving ahead with actions designed to make Iran take negotiations more seriously while convincing Israel to hold off on a unilateral strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The actions include naval exercises and new anti-missile systems in the Persian Gulf, and a more forceful clamping down on Iranian oil revenue. — jta
