“The ultimate test of a future agreement with Iran is whether or not Iran dismantles its military nuclear program,” said Mr. Netanyahu, who has been less specific in past remarks — often suggesting that Israel could accept nothing less than a total shutdown of all nuclear activities in Iran.

But Mr. Netanyahu went further Tuesday, hinting that military strikes can be averted only if Tehran is willing to follow four key steps.

“First, cease all uranium enrichment. This is called for by several Security Council resolutions. Second, remove from Iran’s territory the stockpiles of enriched uranium. Third, dismantle the infrastructure for nuclear breakout capability, including the underground facility at Qom and the advanced centrifuges in Natanz,” he said. “And, four, stop all work at the heavy water reactor … aimed at the production of plutonium.”
