Iran Pressured By Rice

02-09-05 - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says Iran must quit trying to build nuclear arms, but she says the US has set "no deadline" for action.

Rice is in Europe, where she's been meeting allied leaders to talk about Iraq, Iran and other issues.

At a news conference in Belgium today with NATO leaders, she warned that Iranian leaders "are going to have to live up to their
international obligations."

Rice says if Iran doesn't act, the issue would go to the UN Security Council. She says Iranian leaders should know that "there are other steps" world powers can take.

Iran has denied making nuclear weapons, and says its nuclear
activities are geared solely toward generating electricity.
