Ayalon exults over UN sanctions in CNN interview

After the approval of a new round of Iran sanctions by the UN Security Council on Wednesday, deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon spoke with strident rhetoric on television channel CNN on the importance of the outcome of the council's vote.
"This is a historic moment," said Ayalon. "History will judge the countries by their votes, whether they pursued their own narrow and cynical interests or voted for peace and [regional] stability."
