Iranian lawmakers call for review of cooperation with IAEA

London: Britain does not exclude military action against Iran in the long-term if negotiations fail to halt Tehran's controversial nuclear programme, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Monday.

"We are not considering that (military action) at the moment. We are not calling or advocating military action. At the same time we say all options should remain in future," Hague was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

"Of course, we will also look over the coming months to increase the peaceful legitimate pressure on Iran as part of our dual track approach of being available for negotiations if they're real negotiations but at the same time placing more pressure on Iran through sanctions," he said.

A recent report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran continued its nuclear weapons research and technology development after 2003, at a time when it declared a halt in its nuclear programme.

The report said Tehran had temporarily frozen nuclear activities, but that there was evidence the programme continued to be carried out at a more modest pace.

Russia has criticised the IAEA report while France and Germany have called for more economic sanctions against Iran.
