Foreign Secretary William Hague has warned Israel against military action on Iran.

Hague says economic sanctions and negotiations had to be given “a real chance” to convince Tehran to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

He says, “I don’t think a wise thing at this moment is for Israel to launch a military attack on Iran.”

Tensions over Iran’s nuclear program are running high. Israel, the US, Britain and others suspect that the Islamic Republic is using the program as cover for the manufacture of atomic weapons and observers fear a pre-emptive strike may be in the works.
