In a harsh language not heard in many months, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned Iran that its nuclear program has reached a “critical” stage. Tehran will not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons with the potential to kill millions, Brown said.
The Prime Minister added that Iran faced a “clear choice,” giving up its nuclear program or facing “further and tougher” action.
Brown made his remarks during a speech today at a conference on nuclear proliferation in London.
“Iran has concealed nuclear activities, refused to co-operate with the International Atomic Energy Agency and flouted United Nations Security Council resolutions.
“Its refusal to play by the rules leads us to view its nuclear program as a critical proliferation threat.” [The Mirror, 17 March].
