Washington’s envoy to Israel says the U.S. has plans in place to attack Tehran if necessary to prevent it from becoming an atomic military power.
In remarks before the Israel Bar Association, Dan Shapiro said the U.S. hopes diplomacy and economic sanctions will pressure Iran to abandon its suspect nuclear program.
The Associated Press obtained a recording of his remarks on Thursday. Shapiro spoke Tuesday.
World powers are to meet with Iran for a new round of nuclear talks in Baghdad next week. Iran denies it is building bombs.
