Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called Sunday for a stronger international campaign against Iran's nuclear program, to "thwart it with greater force," Reuters reported.
"We must increase our measures to prevent Iran from achieving its devious goals," Olmert said in a speech to Jewish leaders in Jerusalem. "Iran cannot become nuclear."
Israel and the West fear Iran may be using nuclear technology to develop a nuclear weapon, which the Jewish state sees as a potential threat to its existence. Iran says its nuclear program is solely for energy purposes.
