US to do everything to prevent Iran from acquiring nukes: Biden
Washington: The Obama Administration is
doing everything that is within its power to prevent Iran from
acquiring nuclear weapon, US Vice President Joe Biden said
"We are doing everything that is within our power and
we will do everything to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear
weapon, having the capability to use a nuclear weapon," Biden,
who recently visited the countries in Middle East, told in an interview.
"There`s a lot going on, a lot going on internally
within Iran, the time frame in which they could acquire that,
what action we could take to slow that up or prevent that. All
of that`s in play," he noted.
"That`s why we think the best course of action to take
now is to declare, A, we are not going to allow them to
acquire a nuclear weapon, and B, to continue down the course
we`re on, which is to get international sanctions that have
teeth in it that cause them to change their mind," Biden said.
Observing that the US is concerned about Iran
acquiring nuclear weapons, Biden said that is the reason why
the Obama Administration is seeking very strong sanctions at
the United Nations right now.
