U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in Britain today, Sunday where she will confer with Prime Minister Tony Blair on Iran's nuclear program and other security issues.
Ms. Rice's stop in London comes one day after she failed to persuade Russian leaders to support efforts to bring Iran before the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions if Tehran continues to reject negotiations on its nuclear program.
She told Russian leaders that Iran is not living up to its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
In an interview on British radio (BBC), Ms. Rice said she is confident Iran will be referred to the Security Council when diplomacy has run its course.
The U.S. secretary of state is on a European tour to gather support for urging Iran to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency, and return to stalled talks on the country's nuclear program
