International Atomic Energy Agency announced the deal on Tuesday at which Barak was referring to. He told Army Radio that Iran was manoeuvring to fend off international pressure.
“A nuclear Iran is intolerable and no options should be taken off the table,” he said, adding the use of force was not out of question.
The only way Israel could see Iran develop its civilian nuclear industry is if it shuts down all of its uranium enrichment sites and uses imported fuel, RT quoted Barak as saying.
West suspects Iran’s efforts to build an atomic weapon, but Iran denies the charges, saying that its pursuits are purely civilian.
“Dragging things out, in our eyes, is problematic, so conversations between the West and Iran must occur more frequently. North Korea also negotiated with the West but in the end tested nuclear weapons,” Barak pointed out.
Last week US Ambassador Dan Shapiro said the Pentagon has a plan for a military strike on Iran, and may carry it out if ordered.
“It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force,” he said.
