The UN nuclear watchdog's decision to censure Iran should show the Islamic republic that it will face consequences if it refuses to engage with the West over the nuclear issue, a senior US official was quoted as saying Friday. "We hope that the board of governors resolution reinforces the message that, you know, we're committed to putting together a package of consequences if we don't find a willing partner. We hope Iran takes note of that clear message," the unnamed official said, according to Reuters.
