Israel's Foreign Ministry says the UN nuclear watchdog cannot be trusted to monitor the Iranian program and the international community should act independently to stop Iran.
"These findings demonstrate that the international community, no more than Israel, cannot place its trust in the IAEA monitoring in Iran," the ministry said in a statement Sunday after the UN agency released its latest report on Iran.
Officials in Tel Aviv have long strived to portray Iran as a regime hell-bent on a nuclear war and have attempted to rally support for tough measures, including the use of military force, to stop the country's program.
"What is needed from the international community is immediate and determined action to ensure that Iran will not be able to produce nuclear weapons," the Israeli ministry said.
"The weakness currently displayed by the international community allows a country like North Korea to pursue a policy of defiance, and Iran is an attentive student of this policy."
The statement, however, failed to notice that North Korea has withdrawn from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) with weaponization intentions and has declared that it possesses nuclear arsenal.
