Blinken warns of 'other options' if diplomacy fails on Iran nuclear issue - China.org.cn

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Wednesday warned that the United States would turn to "other options" if diplomacy fails to curb Iran's nuclear program, saying "time is running short."


Blinken on Wednesday met with his counterparts of Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the State Department over bilateral and trilateral cooperation as well as regional security issues, including Iran.

During a joint press conference after their trilateral meeting, Blinken reiterated that diplomacy is the most effective way to ensure that Iran would not develop a nuclear weapon.

"We are prepared to turn to other options if Iran doesn't change course," he said

The United States and Iranian officials began indirect talks in Vienna this April to restore the 2015 nuclear agreement, formally knowns as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The two sides still have significant differences after six rounds of negotiations, which have been suspended since June.

"I'm not going to put a specific date on it, but with every passing day and Iran's refusal to engage in good faith, the runway gets short," he said.

Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid told reporters that the concern about Iran's nuclear capability was at the center of his visit. "Israel reserves the right to act at any given moment in any way" to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, he said...

  • Israel reserves the right to attack Iran at any time of its choosing, under the pretext of stopping it from acquiring a nuclear weapon, Tel Aviv’s FM Yair Lapid said after meeting with his American and Emirati counterparts.


Addressing reporters after a sit-down with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed in Washington on Wednesday, Lapid insisted that Tehran must not be allowed to obtain the bomb, saying the issue was at the “center” of his visit. Though Iran has long maintained it has no interest in developing nukes, Lapid vowed that Israel would stop its supposed “race to the bomb” by any means necessary.

“Israel reserves the right to act at any given moment and in any way. That is not only our right, it is also our responsibility,” he said. “Iran has publicly stated it wants to wipe us out. We have no intention of letting this happen.”

    We know there are moments when nations must use force to protect the world from evil. If a terror regime is going to acquire a nuclear weapon, we must act, we must make clear that the civilized world won't allow it. If the Iranians don’t believe the world is serious about stopping them, they’ll race to the bomb....RT

  1. Israel reclama el "derecho" y la "responsabilidad" de utilizar cualquier medida necesaria contra Irán en el momento oportuno debido a la amenaza que, consideran, representa el país en materia nuclear, declaró este miércoles el ministro de Asuntos Exteriores israelí Yair Lapid, tras el encuentro con su homólogo emiratí, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahayan, y el secretario de Estado de EE.UU., Antony Blinken, en Washington D.C.

    "Israel se reserva el derecho de actuar en cualquier momento y de cualquier forma. No es solo nuestro derecho, sino también nuestra responsabilidad", aseguró el canciller israelí.
