Iranian isolation will continue: Obama
Washington: President Barack Obama says that as long as Iran continues down a dangerous path with its nuclear program, the United States will continue to find ways to isolate and increase the pressure on Tehran.
Obama issued the statement after his administration announced a new set of sanctions against Iran. The actions were coordinated with Britain and Canada and follow a new report from a United Nations watchdog suggesting Iranian work toward the development of atomic weapons.
Obama says Iran`s actions jeopardise international peace and stability. Still, he says the US is still prepared to start a new chapter with Iran if it fulfils its international obligations. But if it continues to defy its responsibilities, he says Iran faces even more pressure.
