Canadian PM to G8: Coordinated action needed against Iran

OTTAWA — Top diplomats from the world's leading economies are ramping up pressure on Iran to prove its nuclear ambitions are peaceful or face tough new sanctions.
Opening a conference of foreign ministers from the Group of Eight main industrialized nations on Tuesday, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Iran must halt its nuclear enrichment activities and comply with international demands to come clean about its atomic program.
On behalf of the ministers, Harper urged the world to adopt a heightened focus on the Iranian nuclear issue and take "stronger coordinated action" against Iran.
