US to push for new Iran sanctions
The US accuses Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons
The US has said it will press for a new set of sanctions to be imposed on Iran over its continued failure to suspend its uranium enrichment programme. The call came after the UN's nuclear watchdog said Tehran was stepping up enrichment despite UN Security Council demands and obstructing inspections. The US said the report was "a laundry list of Iran's continued defiance of the international community".
