US Secretary of State meets European counterparts to discuss additional round of sanctions on Iran. US senators send letter to president, say military action could be inevitable

Earlier, Clinton met with the foreign ministers of the UK, France, Germany and Italy to discuss Iran's nuclear program. Some sources reported that the five discussed the latest developments in the Iranian arena and the possibility of implementing another round of sanctions.

In a letter to President Obama, senators claimed military action in Iran might be needed, while members of the House of Representatives urged Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates to "support Israel's sovereign right to take whatever action necessary for its own defense."

"It will only serve to further isolate Iran's government in the world and from it's people," White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters.
