WASHINGTON – Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Thursday called on the US to set a clear deadline with a threat of future action to give heft to the sanctions already imposed on Iran.

“There is tremendous progress regard to sanctions and we praised the American administration for its success in passing tough sanctions, which Iran is starting to feel,” he told reporters while on a visit to Washington. But it may be that sanctions alone won’t be sufficient and the US and other countries will have to a clear warning and deadline, a strong and harsh ultimatum.”

He declined to specify what such a threat would consist of, though he said an embargo and other steps short of military attack could be considered.
