The threat which Iran poses is not only nuclear, but is a comprehensive threat.

Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affair Tzipi Lizni met today (10 July 2008) with Irish Foreign Minister Micheál Martin.

Referring to the Iranian threat, FM Livni said: "The threat which Iran poses is not only nuclear, but is a comprehensive threat. Iran supports Hizbullah, Hamas and other extremist elements in the region and is a threat not only to Israel. Iran’s response to Europe is not ambiguous. Iran rejects the international demand to halt the enrichment of uranium and the world must respond accordingly – by increasing and intensifying the sanctions against Iran."
