The White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs today warned Iran that December is “a very real deadline” ahead of new sanctions against the country over its uranium enrichment program.
Earlier today, Iranian President Ahmadinejad had ridiculed the West for the deadline.
“They say we have given Iran until the end of the Christian year. Who are they anyway? It is we who have given them an opportunity,” said Ahmadinejad said in a speech in Shiraz.
