US Secretary of State Nominee John Kerry categorically stated on Thursday that he would be totally committed to sanctions against Iran.

During his confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he also said he was hopeful of making political progress with Tehran:

“Iran continues, I say this to the Iranians and I hope they will listen, they have continually professed the peacefulness of their program.”

Kerry, a Vietnam veteran, added: “It is not hard to prove a peaceful program. Other nations have done that and do it every day.”

He has been slammed by critics in the past for being too soft on Iran and failing to discourage President Ahmadinejad from pursuing a nuclear programme.
