The foreign minister on Wednesday called for a new UN Security Council resolution on Iran, aimed at preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. At a news conference in Jerusalem after meeting US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Tzipi Livni said, "I do believe there is a need for another Security Council resolution. In the past, the need to get everybody on board, including Russia and China, led to some compromises on the nature of the sanctions. I hope this will not (be) the case this time." Rice said the council is working on a new resolution, and the US would follow that route if negotiations with Iran fail. Israel considers Iran a serious threat because of repeated calls by its president for the destruction of Israel and its assumed goal of building nuclear weapons. Iran denies that its nuclear program is military in nature.
