As the major powers' talks with Iran ended in Kazakhstan Wednesday with only a promise to meet again in March and April, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said the world must make clear to Tehran that there will be "military sanctions" if it does not halt its nuclear program.

Netanyahu's comments came at a Jerusalem meeting with visiting Sri Lankan Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris.

"Iran continues to defy the international community, and it does not appear that it is trying to halt its military nuclear program," he said. "Like North Korea, it continues to oppose all international standards."
