Israel: New Iran sanctions "important step," but "not enough"

Israel Wednesday called the United Nations Security Council resolution imposing new sanctions on Iran an "important step," but said it in itself was "not enough" and more action should be taken, DPA reported.

"Iran bluntly violated all the resolutions that were passed until now," said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor, and as such was showing its "contempt" for the international community and its institutions.

"The importance lies in the complete and immediate implementation," he said, arguing the resolution should "be accompanied by additional steps in other international frameworks."

Only "wide and determined international action" would bring home the "price" of continued noncompliance, he said in a statement.

"The consequences of the combination of Iran's radical ideology and a nuclear weapon would be catastrophic," he said.
