'Give Iran last chance for dialogue'
We should give Iran one last chance for dialogue," French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said in an interview published on Monday in Le Figaro.
According to Kouchner, "Economic sanctions that would be imposed on Iran would be very harsh, but we are not there yet."
The French foreign minister expressed concern about Iran's actions. "Why did Iran announce 10 new uranium enrichment sites when it has only one nuclear plant to burn this fuel?" The fact that Iran persists in ignoring the demands of the IAEA, that's very dangerous."
Regarding tensions between Israel and Iran, Kouchner said "direct confrontation between the countries must be avoided as it would have incalculable consequences."
Empty threats? - the bluff has been exposed. Sanctions are needed now - no imaginable excuse for delay.
