US presidential hopeful Barack Obama said on Wednesday that a nuclear Iran would pose a “grave threat” and that the world must prevent it from obtaining the atomic bomb.
“A nuclear Iran would pose a grave threat and the world must prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Obama said.
“A nuclear Iran would be a game-changing situation, not just in the Middle East but around the world,” Obama said on the latest leg of talks in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Obama spoke of a series of “big sticks and big carrots” regarding the the Iranian regime and repeated his openness to meeting with its representatives, if the conditions were appropriate.
