Iran's move to surpass uranium enrichment caps outlined in the Iran nuclear deal has Israel calling for a sanctions response, because "it's for the creation of atomic bombs," according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Iran has violated its solemn promise under the U.N. Security Council not to enrich uranium beyond a certain level," Netanyahu said in a video shared on Twitter. The enrichment of uranium is made for one reason and one reason only: It's for the creation of atomic bombs."
Netanyahu finished his video statement with a call for retaliatory sanctions on Iran from the P5+1 – the U.N. Security Council's five permanent members (the P5): China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, plus Germany.
"The leaders of the P5+1 promised and committed themselves to snap back sanctions the minute Iran did that; it just did," he said.
"Where are you?"
Iran announced its move Sunday to surpass the uranium enrichment caps to leverage Europe to oppose U.S. sanctions that have already been levied after President Trump withdrew from the Obama-era nuclear agreement.
French President Macron spoke with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday to "explore between now and July 15 conditions for resumed dialogue among all parties," according to reports.
