WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's top national security aide said on Tuesday a US-led drive to isolate Iran had slowed its nuclear program and that there was still "time, space and means" to persuade Tehran to abandon atomic weapons ambitions.

National security adviser Tom Donilon defended Obama's Iran policy in a wide-ranging speech following criticism by Republican presidential contenders that the administration had not done enough to thwart Tehran's nuclear advances.

His remarks may also serve as an appeal to Israel for more time to let Washington's strategy work. There has been growing speculation about an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites since a UN nuclear watchdog accused Tehran this month of covert atomic weapons work.
