Olmert: World must understand cost of nuclear Iran outweighs business benefits

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday night that other countries should penalize Iran by barring business travelers, blocking financial transactions and imposing sanctions on Iran's import of refined gasoline and on countries that perform that task for oil-rich but facilities-poor Iran. "Each and every country must understand that the long-term cost of a nuclear Iran greatly outweighs the short-term benefits of doing business with Iran," Olmert told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
