Cheney- Iran faces consequences in nuclear dispute
Tue Mar 7, 2006 5:26 PM GMT
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons and Tehran faces "meaningful consequences" if it persists in defying the international community, Vice President Dick Cheney said on Tuesday.

Cheney, speaking to the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC, also reaffirmed that the United States was keeping all options on the table in its determination to prevent Iran from developing nuclear arms.

"The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course the international community is prepared to impose meaningful consequences," Cheney said.

Cheney spoke as the 35-nation International Atomic Energy Agency governing board was meeting in Vienna to decide its next steps on Iran and as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held talks on the issue with U.S. leaders in Washington.

"For our part, the United States is keeping all options on the table. ... We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon," Cheney said.

Senior U.S. officials have repeatedly refused to rule out the use of force, saying "all options are on the table."
