      Biden: Iran Sanctions Will Be Enforced


      UPI reports U.S. Vice President Joe Biden assured Israel sanctions against Iran would continue to be enforced, a senior administration official said.

      In Israel to attend the funeral of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, says UPI, Biden met with Prime Minster Benyamin Netanyahu and updated him on last week's agreement of "P5 plus 1" nations to constrain Iran's nuclear ambitions while providing Iran some relief from economic sanctions.

      "The sanctions architecture remains intact," the official said aboard the plane returning Biden and his staff from Israel, adds UPI.

      Biden and Netanyahu also discussed Iranian intervention in the Middle East and the building of new settlements in Israel.
