Ayalon: Sanctions Can Stop Iran, So Toughen Them


Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon spoke, Monday morning, on behalf of increasing sanctions against Iran's nuclear threat. Addressing an audience at the Ariel University Center, he said, "In the end I believe that Iran can be stopped by sanctions. Therefore, it is important that the world continue to toughen the sanctions against Tehran."

Ayalon continued, "I believe that once the Iranian economy is severely hurt, they will not take risks. You should remember it is - after all - still a somewhat rational regime, and even if it continues nuclear buildup, do not forget what President Obama said, that all options are on the table".
