Rice threatens Iran with more sanctions

Press TV

"US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has warned Iran to freeze its uranium enrichment program within 2 weeks or face punitive measures.

Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili and the EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana, accompanied by representatives of the Group 5+1, held a new round of talks in Geneva Saturday aimed at resolving Tehran's nuclear standoff......

Rice said that in case Iran refused to suspend its nuclear work, the Security Council would go back to the track of imposing sanctions.

She added that Burns would hold no talks with the Iranians in another round of negotiations to be held between the two sides in two weeks time.

"We've done enough to demonstrate that the United States is serious and to assure our partners that we're serious and to assure the Iranians that we're serious," she said. "
