Rice: 'Time for action' on Iran
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday that it is "time for action" on the international demands for Iran to cease its uranium enrichment activities, a day after the Islamic Republic announced a new milestone in its program.
Iran said Tuesday it had enriched uranium at a level of concentration high enough to operate a nuclear power plant, defying last month's U.N. Security Council presidential statement calling for an end to the program.
"When the Security Council reconvenes (later this month), I think it will be time for action," Rice said. "We can't let this continue."
Rice did not elaborate on what type of action the Security Council should take, but her spokesman, Sean McCormack, said it should be "stronger than a presidential statement."
