Incoming US President Barack Obama will likely face a "serious crisis" over Iran’s nuclear ambitions in his first year in office, former US defense secretary William Perry predicted here Thursday.
Perry told a foreign policy forum here that Obama must find a new diplomatic approach to stop Iran’s suspected nuclear arms quest because Israel — which has held out the threat of military action — will not "sit idly by."
The star-studded event sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) was dominated by calls for Obama to check the spread of nuclear know-how and to promote peace in security in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
"If Iran and North Korea cannot be contained, we are facing a real danger of a cascade of nuclear proliferation," Perry warned said. "Indeed I believe that today we are truly on the tipping point of nuclear proliferation."
