NUCLEAR: World Finally “Worried and Suspicious” over Iran’s Intensions, Rice Says
August 9, 2004 - “I think we’ve finally now got the world community to a place, and the International Atomic Energy Agency to a place, that it is worried and suspicious of the Iranian (nuclear) activities,” US National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice said on Sunday in an interview with CNN. “Iran is facing for the first time real resistance to trying to take these steps,” she added. “The United States was the first to say that Iran was a threat in this way, to try and convince the international community that Iran was trying, under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, to actually bring about a nuclear weapons program,” Dr. Rice said.
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Rice reasserted that the world has fallen in line on Iran and said she expects next month to get a strong statement from the IAEA “that Iran will either be isolated, or it will submit to the will of the international community.” She also said: “We cannot allow the Iranians to develop a nuclear weapon. The international community has got to find a way to come together and to make certain that that does not happen.”
