After Talks End, Netanyahu Calls For ‘Military Sanctions’ On Iran

Prime minister says credible threat needed after world powers unable to reach agreement with Tehran; John Kerry calls talks useful

The international community should threaten Iran with “military sanctions” if the regime doesn’t stop pursuing its nuclear program, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday, after another round of talks between six world super powers and Tehran ended without tangible progress.

“We have the problem of Iran that is continuing to defy the international community, doesn’t seem to seek an end to its military nuclear program,” he said during a meeting with Sri Lankan Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris in Jerusalem. “Like North Korea, it continues to defy all the international standards and I believe that this requires the international community to ratchet up its sanctions and make clear that if this continues there will be also a credible military sanction. I think no other means will make Iran obey the wishes of the international community.”

Earlier on Wednesday, a fourth round of negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany ended in Kazakhstan. The so-called P5+1 offered Tehran a “revised proposal, which we believe is balanced and a fair basis for constructive talks,” the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, said after the talks.
