VIENNA - Sanctions have a chance of preventing Iran becoming a "military
nuclear country" if the economic and political pressure on Tehran is
stepped up further, a senior government official said on Friday.
Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor said it was important to increase
sanctions pressure on the Islamic Republic during a visit to Vienna,
where he met UN nuclear chief Yukiya Amano and Austrian leaders.
Iran should face a "heavier price every week, every month, so that they
understand they are not going to get away with it," Meridor told
