Clinton says diplomacy with Iran not infinite

United States America,Diplomacy, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 IANS

Washington, April 5 (IANS) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the time for diplomacy with Iran over its disputed nuclear programme is not "infinite".




"We want to see a peaceful resolution of the international community's concerns, but the time for diplomacy is not infinite and all options remain on the table to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon," Clinton said at a joint press conference here Wednesday with Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci.


"Until Iran comes into compliance with its international obligations and demonstrates the peaceful intent of its nuclear programme, they will continue to face strong pressure and isolation," she said.


"So the sooner that we begin talks, the better it will be," Clinton noted, adding that EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton is still consulting with Iran on the time and venues of the upcoming talks.


Clinton made the remarks ahead of the upcoming talks between Iran and the six world powers, namely the US, Britain, France, Russia, and China, plus Germany, also known as G5+1, reported Xinhua.


She said Saturday in Saudi Arabia that the six world powers and Iran had agreed on meeting in Turkey's Istanbul April 13.



But Iran's Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Wednesday that China and Iraq are also considered by Tehran as the venues for the talks.


At the end of last year, US President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, a part of which is aimed at choking off Iran's crucial oil revenue by targeting its central bank and financial sector.


The law allows the Obama administration to slap sanctions on foreign banks that engage in oil transactions with Iran's central bank and cut them off from the American financial system.
