Israel Warns: Few Months to Avoid Nuclear Iran

Foreign Minister Livni tells CNN’s Late Edition ‘the crucial moment is not the day of the bomb, but the day in which Iran will master the enrichment’; adds: I believe that this is time for sanctions

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said on Sunday that the world may have as little as “A few months” to avoid a nuclear Iran and called for sanctions.

Livni, whose country is the only Middle East power possessing nuclear weapons, said she did not want to identify a point of “No return” in the controversy over Iran’s nuclear program.

The Iranians, she said, “Are trying to send a message that it’s too late, you can stop your attempts because it’s too late. It’s not too late. They have a few more months,” She said.

“The world cannot afford a nuclear Iran,” Livni said. “I believe that this is time for sanctions.”

Iran, whose president last year called for Israel to be “Wiped off the map,” denies it is seeking nuclear weapons.

I wholeheartedly agree!
