excerpt from:  House of Commons Hansard Debates for 25 May 2010

UK Parliament website, 25 May 2010

“A stable Afghanistan, free from terrorist training camps, is vital to our security, and so is an Iran free from nuclear weapons. All the evidence points in the same direction-that Iran is intent on developing nuclear weapons.

Even if Iran were to complete the deal proposed in its recent agreement with Turkey and Brazil, it would still retain around 50% of its stockpile of low-enriched uranium. It is that stockpile that could be enriched to weapons-grade uranium.

For the last six years, we have pursued a twin-track policy, offering engagement but being prepared to apply pressure. It is time to ratchet up that pressure and the timetable is short.

This Government have a clear objective to ensure stronger UN and EU sanctions against Iran. Specific areas should be covered, including trade finance, asset freezes and action against banks that hold funds for the Iranian regime.”

[UK Prime Minister David Cameron, first speech as prime minister to the UK Parliament, London, 25 May 2010]  (*)
