Building an international coalition to pressure Iran over its nuclear program is the best way to move forward, Intelligence Agencies Minister Dan Meridor said Tuesday.

Speaking with Israel Radio, Meridor praised new sanctions imposed by the EU and US Monday, saying, "An international coalition is coming together, adopting both the importance and urgency of the situation."

While emphasizing that all options are still on the table, Meridor said that international pressure on Iran "is the way we have to go." The question, he said, is whether Iran will find the cost high enough to change course.

A nuclear Iran, the minister said, would change the power dynamics in the region and could start arms race.
