Israeli defense minister talks tough on Iran nuclear issue (2)


15:24, November 17, 2011

At the same news conference, MacKay described a UN report released earlier this month on Iran's nuclear program as "stark" and a potential wake-up call for the international community.

On Nov. 8, the International Atomic Energy Agency released a report saying it found signs of possible nuclear weapons development in Iran. The agency will meet in Vienna Thursday to discuss its response to the report.

Neither Barak nor MacKay would talk specifically about any military action against Iran, saying world leaders were in the process of deciding the appropriate response.

According to the Canadian government, Barak and MacKay will be attending a defense ministerial conference in Canada this weekend, when they will meet U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to discuss key defense and security issues.
