“Last month he (Iranian President Ahmadinejad) made a trip to the United States and had some crazy things to say.Yesterday, he made a trip to Lebanon and again had some crazy things to say. He"s now back in Tehran where his country faces an increasingly bleak future and is further isolated from the international community as our announcement today underscores," State Department spokesman, P J Crowley, said.
The State Department spokesman said the US believe that the latest round of sanctions imposed on Iran by the US Security Council is increasing.
He added, “We are enforcing 1929 (UN resolution) country by country, and in the private sector, company by company are refusing to do business with Iran."
But as long as the international community feels that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon, then Iran can expect to have these sanctions continue to bite," he said.
Mr Crowley said the door of diplomacy is still open for Iran as announced by US President Barack Obama.
