WASHINGTON, May 12 (Reuters) - The United States on Thursday backed France, Britain and Germany in their warning to Iran that they will break off talks over Tehran's nuclear program if it resumes uranium enrichment.
"Iran needs to abide by its international obligations," said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.
France, Britain and Germany warned in a letter to Iran that they would end negotiations over Iran's nuclear program if Tehran went ahead with uranium enrichment as it has threatened to do.
McClellan said the Europeans had made clear if Iran were to resume atomic work or failed to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency it would be grounds for referring Iran to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions.

Appeasement policies have rarely if ever worked
Personally, why should the Europeans be so worried or concerned?
Geez, they didn't actually think that the Iranian Mullahs were being less than honest about their intentions concerning uranium enrichment, did they?
Oh my goodness. How dreadful.
How many UN resolutions will be asked for and ratified?
UN sanctions are not going to change anything.
The Europeans got owned by the Iranians in virtually all those diplomatic 'appeasement' discussions. Going to the UN is not going to halt Iranian ambitions. Iran is worried by this, too, eh? Not likely.
This will be another test for the defunct United Nations and it will fail to obtain any agreeable solution(s), just as the European talks with Iran produced. While the UN talks, Iran will keep on truckin' along with their ambitions.
