The US will continue to pressure the Iranian regime through sanctions if the upcoming P5+1 talks fail to lead to a negotiated settlement over Tehran's nuclear program, US President Barack Obama said Thursday.

The US president spoke via telephone about the contentious issue with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. In a press conference, White House Spokesman Jay Carney said that "both leaders expressed hope that Iran would take advantage of the upcoming P5+1 talks to address the international community's concerns on their nuclear program."
