The US will not be deterred from opening an additional military front against Iran should other means of persuasion fail to curb its nuclear ambitions, London-based Arab daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported Saturday, quoting unnamed diplomats.
The sources reportedly told the paper that Western nations planned to announce tough sanctions against the Islamic republic in February, mainly targeting its oil exports.
