Nearly a year after becoming the top US diplomat to the global body, Susan Rice said in an interview with AP published Friday that though challenges remain, she sees evidence every day "that the world is responding differently and much more openly to the United States of America." Alluding to the threat of nuclear proliferation, Rice said Iran has a choice between engagement or increased pressure, which could include new sanctions. "In the new year, absent some significant changes in the posture of Iran, I think we believe that the time will be ripe for serious consideration of additional pressures," she said. Rice also singled out Obama chairing the Security Council in September - a first for a US president at a summit of the UN's most powerful body - when it unanimously adopted a US-sponsored resolution aimed at halting the spread of nuclear weapons and ultimately eliminating them.
