Israel Warns Of Action Against Iran

Intelligence Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz threatened Thursday that Israel could act unilaterally against Iran over its nuclear ambitions, saying Tehran has failed to make concessions in talks with world powers, according to AFP.

“I won’t be too specific but all options are still on the table,” Steinitz said.  “We never limited Israel’s right of self-defense because of some diplomatic constraints,” he said.

Gaps remain between Iran and the P5+1 world powers on specific measures to end a 12-year standoff on Tehran’s nuclear program.

Two deadlines for a permanent agreement have already been missed, since an interim accord was struck in November 2013.

The P5+1 — Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany — have now set a March 31 deadline for a political agreement.

It would be followed by a final deal setting out all the technical points of what would be a complex accord by June 30.
