Netanyahu urges 'military sanctions' threat against Iran

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the international community on Wednesday to threaten Iran with "military sanctions", saying economic measures are failing to curb Tehran's nuclear drive.

"I believe it is incumbent upon the international community to intensify the sanctions and clarify that if Iran continues its program, there will be military sanctions," Netanyahu said, without specifying what specific measures he envisages, in a statement released by the prime minister's office.

"I don't think there are any other means that will make Iran heed the international community's demands," he said, in his first remarks on the issue after two days of nuclear talks between Tehran and world powers in the Kazakh city of Almaty.
