US President Barack Obama has said the US and its allies are developing a "significant regime of sanctions" against Iran for its nuclear programme.

He said the international community was unified over Iran's "misbehaviour".

Speaking in Washington, he said despite Tehran's denials, it was clear Iran was working to build nuclear weapons.

His remarks came after Iranian state media reported that Iran had started the process of enriching uranium to 20% for use in a medical research reactor.

Russian disapproval

Mr Obama also said he was pleased at Russia's quick disapproval of Iran's latest move.

But he said it was unclear how China would respond to a new push at the UN Security Council for another round of sanctions against Iran.
