Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday said there is still time for diplomacy in trying to persuade Iran to end its nuclear defiance and called on the international community to impose harsh sanctions on the Islamic republic. Speaking to reporters Monday during an official visit to Austria, Barak said that tough sanctions must be turned on Iran to persuade Teheran to give up uranium enrichment military and to "stop their move toward a military nuclear capacity."
