Israel, US: We will stop Iran

Israel, US: We will stop Iran 18 Dec 2011 Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Tel Aviv and Washington are determined to stop Iran's nuclear program and do not rule out any option to this end. "Our two countries clearly believe that a nuclear Iran is neither conceivable nor acceptable and we are determined to stop Iran," Barak told Israel's public radio on Sunday. He added, "We reiterated the fact that we must not take any option off the table." The remarks come two days after US President Barack Obama once again said that Washington would take "no options off the table" in its effort to halt Iran's nuclear activities.
