The United States is pressing for very tough new sanctions against Iran this month, a top US aide said Sunday, suggesting that the move could help bring about “regime change.”
“We’re… going through the UN this month to present sanctions,” President Barack Obama’s national security advisor, retired general James Jones, told Fox News Sunday.
While the US is not actively seeking to destabilize Iran, which has been rocked by months of anti-government protests since disputed elections last year, Jones said additional sanctions could nevertheless have that effect.
“We know that internally there is a very serious problem. We’re about to add to that regime’s difficulties by engineering, participating in very tough sanctions, which we support,” he said.
