Obama warns Iran leaders
U.S. President Barack Obama said his focus on nuclear disarmament had strengthened American diplomacy in dealing with North Korea and Iran, and he warned Tehran leaders faced "growing consequences" over its nuclear program.
In his State of the Union address to the U.S. Congress on Wednesday, Obama said the focus on nuclear arms control "is why North Korea now faces increased isolation and stronger sanctions -- sanctions that are being vigorously enforced" And he added: "That is why the international community is more united, and the Islamic Republic of Iran is more isolated." "And as Iran's leaders continue to ignore their obligations, there should be no doubt: they too, will face growing consequences."
