U.S. threatened Iran

August 6 2008

U.S. warns that Iran could be taken if Iran does not give a clear answer to the proposals of the six international mediators to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue, said Wednesday the Associated Press citing a statement by State Department U.S. Gonzalo Galelgosa.

"We need a clear, positive response from Iran, and if it is not - we will have no choice but to apply further measures" - Gallegos said at a news conference. In addition, the U.S. official, who requested anonymity, said that Tehran's letter, received by EU High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana on Friday, "is not the answer, which is expected the international community." "Again the same from the Iranians - is unclear and delay," - he said.

"Six" (the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany) sought by Iran suspend uranium enrichment, which can pose a threat to nuclear nonproliferation regime. In return, Iran proposed a number of joint economic and technological projects, including in the field of peaceful nuclear energy.

Earlier it was reported that the letter referred to Tehran that Iran was ready to give a "clear response" to offer "as soon as possible," while "waiting for the removal of uncertainty." The document said that such mutual explanation can contribute "quick and open the negotiation process with bright prospect." Also states that Tehran is "carefully considered" the proposals of the Six.

One Western official said on Friday that in a letter to Tehran's "absolutely nothing", referring to the lack of specific proposals of Iran. At a July 19 meeting in Geneva, Solana and representatives of the "six" with Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili International mediators have given Iran two weeks to prepare a response.

Later, the White House warned that Iran could face further international sanctions if there is no response from him within two weeks after the Geneva talks. Term, this Washington, expired on August 2. Iranian authorities have stated that U.S. ultimatums will not help solve the nuclear issue, RIA Novosti reported.
