US President Obama said Saturday leaders of the group of 8 major economies are committed to continuing the current approach of sanctions, pressure and diplomatic discussions with Iran over its nuclear program. He told reporters at the G8 Meeting at Camp David: "All of us are firmly committed to continuing with the approach of sanctions and pressure in combination with diplomatic discussions." A US official said Friday that the G8 leaders had agreed that Iran needs to disclose more about its nuclear ambitions. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says there is no evidence that Iran plans on giving up its nuclear program. Instead, the Israeli premier accused Tehran of using its talks with world powers to gain time and mislead the international community, just as North Korea had done over the years, as Netanyahu put it. The Israeli prime minister repeated his demand that Iran stop its uranium enrichment, move all its enriched material outside its borders and dismantle the underground facility in Kom.
Still, Netanyahu said he was doubtful that Iran would meet those demands. The prime minister was speaking while on a visit to Prague.
