Should Iran not accept the offer of direct diplomatic engagement proposed by President Barack Obama in a limited time, it will be faced with a new round of severe penalties aimed at ending its nuclear ambitions, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said on Wednesday. In remarks prepared for a major foreign policy address to be delivered later in the day, Clinton said that the time for Iran to respond to the US overture was now. She said that "the opportunity will not remain open indefinitely." Clinton accused Iran of using "deplorable and unacceptable" actions to put down recent post-election protests. She said that neither she nor President Barack Obama had illusions about the regime but said that direct talks were the best way to get Iranian officials to change their policies.
