CNN: Rice: Iran ‘terror’s central bank’

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Thursday urged Iran to resume negotiations over its nuclear program, while also calling the country a central banker for terrorism.

Rice was speaking after meeting her Australian counterpart Alexander Downer for talks that covered topics including Iraq, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, Indonesia’s development and the recent nuclear deal between Washington and India.

Rice called Iran a “troublesome state” and the “central banker of terrorism,” though she didn’t elaborate on that, and said it was time for the country to “heed the international community’s call” to resume negotiations on its nuclear program.

Rice said she was “quite certain the (U.N.) Security Council will find an appropriate vehicle for expressing again … the desire of the international community … that Iran return to negotiations.”

Rice is paving the way for economic sanctions to be imposed by the WEST outside the framework of the United Nations. The United States knows that China and/or Russia will VETO any U.N. Security Council action.

Stay tuned for Iran’s response……
