British Prime Minister David Cameron has suggested that military action in Iran to prevent it from making nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out.
Cameron said if a fresh round of sanctions fails to halt the rogue state’s nuclear programme, then ‘nothing is off the table’.
“We need the courage to give these sanctions time to work. But let me also say this, in the long term, if Iran makes the wrong choice, nothing is off the table,” the Daily Express quoted Cameron, as saying.
“A nuclear-armed Iran is a threat to Israel, and a threat to the world. This country will work unwaveringly to prevent that from happening,” he added.
His remarks came as European Union foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg agreed a further tightening of existing financial, trade and energy sanctions against Tehran, the report said.
Cameron was speaking at the United Jewish Israel Appeal in London, where he also cautioned Israel against launching military action against Iran, the report added.
