L’AQUILA, Italy, (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday the G8 message to Iran was that if it failed to change its nuclear defiance by a September deadline “we need to take further steps.”

“We’re not going to just wait indefinitely,” Obama told a news conference at the end of a G8 summit in Italy. He insisted, however, that it had never been the intent for the summit to apply new sanctions on Tehran.
