"Iran's leaders must now choose - they can live up to their responsibilities and achieve integration with the community of nations, or they will face increased pressure and isolation, and deny opportunity to their own people," Obama said in his radio address.

"Iran must now cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency, and take action to demonstrate its peaceful intentions," Obama said.
