There will be consequences if Iran does not demonstrate that its nuclear program is "peaceful and transparent," US President Barack Obama said Tuesday. Speaking with Chinese President Hu Jintao, Obama said that the United States and China will work together to confront the threat of an Iran that is armed with nuclear weapons. Obama said the United Nations Security Council members are unified against such a prospect. Obama said he and Hu also discussed their shared goal to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and the verifiable elimination of North Korea's nuclear weapons program. He said Pyongyang has a choice between engagement and isolation, and that North Korea's people would benefit from Pyongyang complying with international demands over its nuclear program.
