Blair says international community will not 'go soft' on Iran

Iran's president-elect Mahmood Ahmadinejad should not expect the international community to 'go soft' on Tehran's nuclear policy, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said. 'We expect Iran to honour its obligations, and we have tried to find a way through the impasse over nuclear capabilities,' Blair said at his monthly press conference after the ultra-conservative Ahmadinejad won Iran's presidential elections. 'It would be a serious mistake if he (Ahmadinejad) thought that we are going to go soft on them, because we are not.'
