JERUSALEM, (AP) — Israel’s prime minister is urging the international community to get tougher against Iran, saying that without a “clear red line” Tehran will not halt its nuclear program.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet Sunday that Iran does not see international determination to stop its nuclear activities.

The U.N. nuclear agency last week concluded that Iran has expanded its nuclear activity at a heavily fortified underground site and effectively shut down inspections of a separate site suspected of being used for weapons-related experiments.

Israel has threatened to attack Iran if it believes international sanctions and diplomacy are failing to curb Tehran’s disputed nuclear program. Iran says its program is solely for peaceful purposes.

Netanyahu’s latest comments reflect Israel’s stance that time for military action is quickly running out.
