The Bush administration reaffirmed its intention Monday to pursue UN sanctions against Iran if it should defy the August 31 deadline for halting enrichment of uranium. It is the will of the international community "to go down the pathway of sanctions" if Iran does not comply with UN demands that it stop the program and open its facilities to international inspection, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.
