    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to push the United States' hard-line approach on Iran, saying at a meeting with European leaders Sunday that the world "will not wait indefinitely" for Iran to comply with international agreements on its nuclear program.

    Clinton spoke with leaders in London this weekend as part of her five-day diplomatic tour of Europe and Russia, meeting with world leaders to discuss Iran, Afghanistan and nuclear programs across the globe.

    She referenced the Geneva talks where Iran and six other world powers pledged to resume nuclear talks as "a constructive beginning" but said the talks would mean nothing if they were not "followed by action." Iran is currently under U.N. penalties for refusing as of yet to stop enriching uranium.

    Clinton will meet with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown later Sunday.
