Israel's Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Monday that Iran aims to reach a level of development of nuclear technology to be able to produce 30 atomic bombs a year, France 24 reports.
Steinitz told reporters that Tehran was "very close" to crossing the red line, of which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke last year.
According to him, Iran is killing time, building more uranium enrichment plants before proceeding directly to the creation of weapons.
"The Iranians are getting closer to it. They have almost 200 kilograms of 20 percent enriched uranium," Israel's intelligence minister said.
