Vice Premier Shimon Peres appealed for united action against Iran, saying the country appears stronger than it really is because of a lack of an international consensus over its nuclear ambitions. Peres did not call for military action, but said a common approach such as economic sanctions is needed. "I'm not concerned there is a need for war with Iran," Peres said at a speech Wednesday at Yale University. "There is a need for a common policy." "Iran is a great problem, but not necessarily a great country," Peres said during a news conference before his speech. "I think as a matter of fact it's a very weak country. What makes them so strong? My answer is the weakness of the international community."
