The Iranian announcement of the installation of new centrifuges with five times the production capacity of the earlier generation of centrifuges negates the spirit of the agreement signed in Geneva.

(Communicated by the Foreign Minister’s Bureau)

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has completed his visit to Great Britain. In the course of the visit, he met with Foreign Secretary William Hague, with Opposition Leader Ed Miliband, Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander, National Security Adviser Sir Kim Darroch, as well as with members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the UK Parliament, British intellectuals, and the heads of the British Jewish community.

In his meeting with British members of Parliament, Foreign Minister Liberman said that the Iranian announcement of the installation of new centrifuges with five times the production capacity of the earlier generation of centrifuges negates the spirit of the agreement signed in Geneva, and proves that the sole purpose of the Iranians at this stage is to win time in order to achieve their goal of obtaining nuclear weapons. FM Liberman said that he expects the powers conducting the talks not to allow them to have it both ways.
