PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- The United States, France and Britain have presented "detailed evidence" to the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog that "Iran has been building a covert uranium enrichment facility," President Obama said Friday.
Obama, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy -- all in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for a G-20 economic summit -- accused Iran of intentionally hiding its nuclear facilities from the International Atomic Energy Agency.
They threatened a stiff response if Iran fails to conform to international obligations regarding nuclear development.
Iran's newly unveiled uranium enrichment facility "is inconsistent with a peaceful (nuclear) program," Obama said. "Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow."
He called on Iran to "take concrete steps" to demonstrate it will comply with its international obligations to ensure its nuclear program is for civilian use and not a covert weapons program.
Brown said international leaders were prepared to impose "further and more stringent" sanctions against Tehran.
The "level of deception by the Iranian government" will "shock and anger the whole international community ... and harden our resolve," he said. There is "no choice but to draw a line in the sand."
Iran "is taking the international community on a dangerous path," Sarkozy said.
Iran has acknowledged the existence of a second uranium enrichment plant in a letter sent to the International Atomic Energy Agency, a spokesman for the nuclear watchdog agency said Friday.

This does not look good. The fact that Obama gathered both France and Britain to his side is without a doubt a sign that the United States is gearing up for war.
Obama knows that the US would not have the American public's support, without other nations condoning what he is saying.

Maybe someone should tell Obama that Israel has nuclear weapons...
Oh wait, the US is practically owned by the Zionists , that wouldn't work would it...
The worlds needs to grow up and start taking more responsilibility for what they do rather than focusing the attention away from itself. Blaming and pointing fingers is something that has gone on and over in history.
