Steinitz: Iran must be judged by actions, not rhetoric

July 3, 2013 10:22

International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz  met with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle in Berlin on Tuesday, to discuss loopholes in Western sanctions against Iran's nuclear program that Tehran has been exploiting and ways to fix them.

Steinitz stressed that since Iranian president-elect Hassan Rouhani portrays himself as a diplomat and negotiator, it is especially important to tighten sanctions. He added that it must be made clear that Iran will be judged solely by its meeting the demands that have been set by the UN Security Council, including a halt to the enrichment of uranium, and not by rhetoric and gestures.

Steinitz was scheduled to meet with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Paris on Wednesday.
