As reported by the Echo Moskvy, the Pentagon believes that Iran continues to develop its nuclear program and may develop nuclear weapons at any time. Washington is extremely concerned about this fact, a spokesman for Defense Minister George Little said.
"We estimate that the program remains at the same level. At this stage we do not know whether they have taken the final decision to begin work on the production of nuclear weapons. We are very concerned about what they (the Iranians) can achieve ... We cannot allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons", Pentagon spokesman George Little said on Thursday.
Pentagon spokesman said he believes sanctions are the most effective way to pressure Iran. "Right now, the Iranian regime is isolated due to the sanctions. They know well that these sanctions affect their economy. Now everything depends on the Iranians themselves", RIA Novosti quoted George Little.
The U.S. has repeatedly made it clear that they were ready to solve the Iranian problem any way. The U.S. and other Western countries accuse Tehran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of peaceful nuclear energy program. With regard to the Islamic Republic introduced a number of sanctions.
