Israel keeps all options against Iran: Barak
Visiting Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said here on Wednesday that Israel will keep all options against Iran's any potential threats or attacks, Xinhua reported.
Speaking to reporters after talks with U.S. officials, Barak said: "I repeat what I have always said, we are not taking any options off the table."
Israel, which is believed to be the only Mideast country that has nuclear weapons, has repeatedly described Iran's uranium enrichment as a threat to its existence, and has vowed to take all possible measures to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons.
Iran insists that its nuclear program is for civilian use only. However, after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran cut all relations with Israel and withdrew its recognition of the Jewish state.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad once called for Israel to be wiped off the map.
