Clinton: Iran risks more economic pressure if it won't discuss nukes

Clinton Iran risks more

Iran's continued defiance on the nuclear issue will lead to more isolation and economic pressure on Teheran, Reuters quoted US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as saying on Friday. "There will be accompanying costs for Iran's continued defiance: more isolation and economic pressure, less possibility of progress for the people of Iran," Clinton said in a speech at the Brookings Institution. "We have made clear our desire to resolve issues with Iran diplomatically. Iran must now decide whether to join us in this effort," she added.
