Time to put pressure on Iran: UK PM

Nov 30, -0001
LONDON: British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday it was time to increase pressure on Iran to abandon its disputed nuclear programme.

"For the last six years we have pursued a twin-track policy offering engagement, but being prepared to apply pressure," Cameron told parliament.

"I believe it is time to ratchet up that pressure, and the timetable is short. This government has a clear objective to ensure stronger U.N. and EU sanctions against Iran."

"There are specific areas that should be covered, including trade finance, asset freezes and action against banks that hold funds for the Iranian regime." AGENCIES
