    Newly installed US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice says the new administration led by US President Barack Obama will engage in "direct diplomacy" with Iran.

    She warned, however, of further action unless Teheran meets UN Security Council demands to suspend uranium enrichment as a prelude to talks on its nuclear program.

    Rice spoke to reporters shortly after meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on her first day on the job Monday.

    She said the US plan for "vigorous diplomacy that includes direct diplomacy" with Iran "must go hand in hand" with a firm message from the US and international community that Iran must meet it UN Security Council obligations.

    Iran's "continuing refusal to do so will only cause pressure to increase," she added.
