Obama warns Iran 'diplomatic window to resolve crisis over nuke program shrinking'

Washington, Thu, 15 Mar 2012 ANI

Washington, Mar 15 (ANI): US President Barack Obama has warned that the window to resolve the crisis over Iran's nuclear program diplomatically is now closing.


"I think they should understand that because the international community has applied so many sanctions, because we have employed so many of the options that are available to us to persuade Iran to take a different course, that the window for solving this issue diplomatically is shrinking," Obama said.


Obama, during a news conference in the White House with British Prime Minister David Cameron, pointed out that Iran has shown a tendency in the past to "delay, to stall, to do a lot of talking,", but has not taken steps to dismantle its nuclear program, The Los Angeles Times reports.


According to the report, Obama did not make an explicit threat, but the possibility of a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities was clear.


Meanwhile, Cameron issued an oblique reminder of it, but stressed that no decision was 'off the table'.


"We are serious about the talks that are set to resume, but the regime has to meet its international obligations. As the President and I have said, nothing is off the table. That is essential for the safety of the region and the wider world," Cameron said.


Meanwhile, Obama recently met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials and urged them to hold off on a possible military attack on Iran to give time for diplomacy to work.


He also argued that Iran would increasingly feel the bite of unprecedented economic sanctions in coming months. (ANI)
