British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Thursday identified North Korea, which has tested nuclear weapons, and Iran, suspected of harboring weapon plans, as obstacles to a safer world. Sarkozy sharply criticized both countries for ignoring Security Council resolutions calling on them to cease such activities. "We may all be threatened one day by a neighbor, by a neighbor endowing itself" with nuclear weapons, he said. "What I believe is that if we have the courage to affirm and impose sanctions on those who violate resolutions of the Security Council we will be lending credibility to our commitment to a world with fewer nuclear weapons and ultimately with no nuclear weapons," said the French president. The British leader called on the council to consider "far tougher sanctions" against Iran.
