Rice: Israel provided 'no new revelation' on Iran's nukes

Nathan Guttman and Aluf Benn, Haaretz Correspondents and Reuters:
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon provided no new information on Iran's nuclear capacity during his meetings with President George W. Bush this week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published on Thursday.

The United States will decide this summer whether to pursue a tougher stance on Iran's nuclear program at the United Nations Security Council, she told the newspaper.

Rice said Washington has faith in European-led negotiations aimed at ensuring that Iran's nuclear program remains non-military, and that what matters most is "a unity of purpose" among all the nations involved.
