Iran's leader says his country now has more than 3,000 centrifuges enriching uranium - a target it set itself in its nuclear programme, state media says.
UN officials say the target, if confirmed, would be the point of no return in an industrial programme.
So both US and Israel have to make up their minds, very soon..

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran's uranium enrichment program is operating well below capacity and is far from producing nuclear fuel in significant amounts, according to a confidential U.N. nuclear watchdog report obtained by Reuters.
Iran had just under 2,000 centrifuges divided into 12 cascades, or interlinked units, of 164 machines each refining uranium at its underground Natanz plant as of August 19, it said.
The report's detail on new Iranian cooperation with inspectors and Tehran's lack of significant enrichment progress are likely to blunt Washington's push for painful sanctions.
