Israeli Peres calls for 'world unity' against Iran
Israeli President Shimon Peres on Tuesday called on the world to form a united front against Iran's nuclear program.

"Iran only has power when the world is divided," Peres told France's Le Figaro daily, referring to the stalemate over Iran's nuclear program.

If Iran is confronted by a united front, it will change its policy on the nuclear issue, he added.

Peres' comments followed British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's remarks on Monday that the world "has not ruled out a military strike on Iran."

As for the issue of relations with the Palestinians, Peres said that "economics is the new creed", adding, "We have no need for colonization."
