Rice threatens Iran to refer it to the UN Security Council

2/9/2005 3:00:00 PM GMT

 

"We should not let the Iranians continue to create new conditions", Rice said

 

 

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice repeated the U.S. threats against Iran over its nuclear programme, saying that Tehran has one of two choices, either accepts a European deal or faces referral the UN Security Council for possible sanctions.

 

"(The) Iranians need to hear that if they are unwilling to take the deal, really, that the Europeans are giving ... then the Security Council looms," Rice told Fox News.

 

Urging the EU big-three to adopt a tougher stance with Tehran, and putting more pressure on the Islamic Republic, Rice added "I don't know that anyone has said that as clearly as they should to the Iranians".

 

"We have believed all along that Iran ought to be referred to the Security Council and then a variety of steps are available to the international community," she said after her arrival in Brussels early Wednesday.

 

"They need to hear that the discussions that they are in with the Europeans are not going to be a kind of waystation where they are allowed to continue their activities; that there's going to be an end to this and that they are going to end up in the Security Council."

 

On Tuesday, the Secretary of State said that it is not up to Iran, a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, to set its own conditions for carrying out a pledge not to develop nuclear weapons.

 

"We should not let the Iranians continue to create new conditions that have to be fulfilled somehow before they are prepared to live up to their international obligations," she following her meeting with French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier.

 

Britain, France and Germany have initiated negotiations with the Islamic Republic in an attempt to persuade it suspend its nuclear programme, Washington claims is being used to produce nuclear arms.
