TRAVIS AIR BASE: The United States, Russia, China, Britain France and Germany will meet late this week to discuss sanctions over Iran's nuclear program, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday.
Speaking to reporters on a flight to Hawaii, she said the administration was contemplating sanctions that would target the Tehran leadership's political and commercial base, but added no decision had been made.
"The P5-plus-1 will reconvene in New York at the end of this week, and they will be exploring the kind and degree of sanctions that we should be pursuing," Clinton told reporters on her way to Hawaii.
The P5-plus-one are the five permanent veto-wielding members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, the group that has been reaching out to Iran in a bid to force the regime to halt its uranium enrichment.
