JERUSALEM, Aug 16 – Israel expects Iran to be capable of producing a nuclear weapon within three years, military intelligence chief General Aharon Zeevi told MPs at a closed-door briefing Tuesday, parliamentary sources said.
«Barring an unexpected delay, Iran is going to become nuclear capable in 2008 and not in 10 years as was recently reported in the American press, Zeevi told members of the foreign affairs and defence committee.
He was referring to a recent report in the Washington Post citing a US Central Intelligence Agency assessment that Iran would not be capable of producing a nuclear weapon for a decade.(afp)
