President Barack Obama threatened Tehran with “significant” sanctions regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
[efoods]Obama said Tuesday that Iran is on a course that would lead to the development of nuclear weapons-grade material. Iran has contended its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes; many Western countries fear that true goal is to make Tehran a nuclear weapons power.
Obama said international officials were “developing a significant regime of sanctions” because of Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
Tehran has taken its own course on nuclear development, virtually ignoring existing sanctions and allegedly not being completely forthcoming with international bodies such as the International Atomic Energy Agency.
