The US continues to believe that there is time for sanctions on Iran to work, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Wednesday.

"We believe there is still time for diplomacy to work, but we need to see a better effort from the Iranians to answer the concerns that we’ve had," Nuland said at a press briefing. "We are focused on trying to have this dual-track policy of diplomacy backed by pressure work, and we are still focused on that."

Nuland also reiterated her hope that heads of state visiting Tehran at the end of the month for the Non-Aligned Movement conference will use the opportunity to press Iran on its illicit nuclear program.
