G-8 foreign ministers agree on need for 'dialogue and pressure' on Iran

G-8 foreign ministers on Friday agreed on the need for both "dialogue and pressure" to persuade Iran to abandon its uranium enrichment program. The agreement was reached at the end of a two-day meeting in Kyoto. The European Union this week froze the assets of Iran's largest bank over Teheran's refusal to back off uranium enrichment. Iran has yet to formally respond to a package of trade and economic incentives to make a deal. The offers were made June 14 by the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany.
