The United States agrees with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's assessment that international sanctions have not had the desired effect on Iran's nuclear program, White House Spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday.

Iran has "yet to make the choice it needs to make, which is to abandon its nuclear weapons ambitions," Carney said. "We completely agree with the prime minister's assessment that Iran has failed to make that choice and that is absolutely a disappointment."
