British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Tuesday that his government will seek further sanctions against Iran through the United Nations and the European Union to discourage Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
"We are absolutely clear that we are ready, and will push for, further sanctions against Iran," Brown said at a joint news conference with Israeli Premier Ehud Olmert. "We will work through the United Nations to achieve this. We are prepared also to have tougher European sanctions. We want to make it clear that we do not support the nuclear ambitions of that country."
