Obama: Do What's Necessary to Prevent Nuclear Weapon


In his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday, U.S. President Barack Obama urged the regime in Tehran to cooperate with the international community in its efforts to monitor the country's nuclear program and assured the nation that Iran will not develop a nuclear weapon. 

"The leaders of Iran must recognize that now is the time for a diplomatic solution, because a coalition stands united in demanding that they meet their obligations. And we will do what is necessary to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon," he said.
