(YNETNEWS) — “Iran is laughing all the way to the bomb,” Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday, while noting that a new report showed that the Islamic Republic has had produced almost 6.2 tons of uranium enriched to a level of 3.5% since it began the work in 2007.

Speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv organized by The Institute for National Security Studies, Yaalon said “there is no indication that Iran feels threatened in any way, despite all the pressure (from the West) and economic difficulties. It still hasn’t brought the regime (in Tehran) to the point where it has to choose between a bomb and survival. They’re not there.”
