(Reuters/Hamodia) – Israel hailed a resolution by the U.N. nuclear watchdog’s 35-nation Board of Governors chiding Iran on Wednesday for failing to explain uranium traces found at three undeclared sites, and saw possible U.N. Security Council intervention in the future.

“This is a significant resolution that exposes Iran’s true face,” Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement, adding that the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) members had “worked together with the aim of arresting and preventing Iran’s attainment of nuclear weaponry.” “If Iran continues with its activities, major countries should bring the Iranian issue back to the Security Council,” he added.

Gilad Erdan, Israel’s U.N. Ambassador, said in a video statement, “The International Atomic Energy Agency’s condemnation of Iran for its nuclear deception reveals the true face of the rogue Iranian regime and its intention to acquire nuclear weapons. If murderous, radical Iran becomes a nuclear threshold state, it would endanger the whole world. The U.N. Security Council must hold Iran accountable and use all possible means to stop Iran’s race toward an atomic bomb.”
