Clinton calls for more ‘stricter sanctions’ against Iran
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Venezuelan television Tuesday she supports stronger sanctions against Iran “to try to change the regime’s behavior.”“We will ask the international community to join us in imposing stricter sanctions on Iran to try to change the behavior of the regime,” Clinton said in a Washington interview broadcast with Venezuelan television station Globovision.
She expressed American “concern” over Iran’s nature, “its quest for nuclear weapons” and “its continued support of terrorism.”
“We have seen in recent weeks that Iran is not abiding by its own democracy,” she added referring to the violence that gripped Iran following the disputed June 12 presidential election.
She added that President Barack Obama’s administration believes “it is not in the best interest” of the world to do business with Iran if it would “promote the regime.”
