Netanyahu Urges 'Crippling Sanctions' Against Iran

Monday, 19 Apr 2010 07:32 AM

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling for "crippling sanctions" against Iran to prevent it from developing a nuclear weapons capability.

In an interview broadcast Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America," Netanyahu said he worries that the international community isn't acting aggressively enough to thwart Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

Netanyahu said the possibility Iran could develop a nuclear weapons program represents "the biggest issue facing our times." He called for denying refined petroleum imports to Iran and said that if the member nations of the U.N. Security Council cannot agree on such a tough move, there is a "coalition of the willing" among other countries that also are worried about Iran.
