U.S. Pushes for Further Iran Sanctions

The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, said the United States seeks further sanctions on Iran in the wake of an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States on Wednesday, Jay Carney "In this arena we take no options off the table. But in dealing with Iran we are clearly focused on working through economic measures, sanctions, as well as diplomatic measures to isolate Iran. And we've had, we think, substantial success doing that" Carney said. U.S. officials said the detailed scheme would justify a new round of U.N. sanctions against Iran. On Wednesday, Mahan Air, an Iranian commercial airline, received sanctions for providing funds and transport for Iran's elite forces. Carney said the U.S will "try to preempt any efforts by Iran to be successful in their efforts to try to deflect responsibility," adding the U.S. will work to enlist more countries to work together against the escalation by Iran. "We consider an effort to assassinate a diplomat in the United States to be a flagrant violation of international law. As you know, we are committed to holding the Iranians accountable. We have charged two individuals because of their involvement in this serious plot and have sanctioned several others," Carney said. On Tuesday FBI Director Robert Mueller portrayed an elaborate conspiracy linking monitored international calls, Mexican drug money and an attempt to kill the Saudi ambassador.
