Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni on Saturday called for tougher sanctions against Iran, saying that it is the responsibility of the entire world to stop Tehran’s quest for the bomb.

Livni’s statement came during a meeting she and Kadima MK Nachman Shai held with Amir Abbas Fakhravar and Saghar Erica Kasraie of the Confederation of Iranian Students (CIS) in Tel Aviv.

The two came as a delegation from the CIS, which describes itself as a pro-western independent student movement with more than 8,000 members in countries across the world.

Upon meeting Livni, Fahkravar quipped that he was happy to meet the head of the Israeli opposition, adding that in Israel - a democracy - being in the opposition doesn’t mean jail and torture.
