An announced increase of uranium enrichment by Iran was a very very dangerous move, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.
Netanyahu again called on Europe to impose punitive sanctions on Tehran, reported Reuters.
He made the remarks after Iran had said it is fully prepared to enrich uranium at any level and with any amount, in further defiance of US efforts to squeeze it with sanctions and force it to renegotiate a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
In a news conference broadcast live, senior Iranian officials said Tehran, which has denied seeking nuclear arms, would keep reducing its commitments every 60 days unless signatories of the pact moved to protect it from US sanctions.
“This is a very, very dangerous step,” Netanyahu said in public remarks to his cabinet.
He added, "Iran has violated its solemn promise under the UN Security Council not to enrich uranium beyond a certain level.
