Iran will reach point of no return, warns Mofaz
WASHINGTON: Visiting Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz said Wednesday he raised the Jewish state’s concerns over Iran’s nuclear programme with US officials and pledged his government’s support for the so-called “roadmap” to peace with the Palestinians.
Mofaz, speaking after meeting with Secretary of State Colin Powell, reiterated comments he made in an address earlier in the day in which he warned that Iran would reach a “point of no return” in its nuclear programme within a year unless there were concerted efforts to stop it.
“Concentrated efforts are needed to delay, to stop or to prevent the Iranian nuclear programme,” he said in the speech, according to a transcript of the event.
“We are committed to President Bush’s vision and to the roadmap,” Mofaz said. —AFP
