WASHINGTON: The United States said Wednesday it is looking at ways to put “additional pressure” on Tehran after the United Nations released a report hardening suspicions that Iran is seeking atomic weapons.
“These are very serious allegations, serious charges, and it’s incumbent on Iran to at last engage with the IAEA in a credible and transparent manner to address these concerns,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said. President Barack Obama’s administration is “going to consult (with allies and partners) and look at ways to impose additional pressure on Iran,” Toner told reporters, adding Washington was considering “a range of options” against the country.
