Vice Premier Silvan Shalom called for imposing stricter sanctions against Iran on Sunday morning.

In an interview with Army Radio, he said "at this time we can bring the US to accept the right choices, and that is to impose even stricter sanctions that are made to subdue and topple the Iranian regime and perhaps bring it to abandon its nuclear program." 

Shalom's position contrasts the position expressed by the the Prime Minister's Office, which wrote off the sanctions as ineffectual earlier this month.
