INTERNATIONAL: No Iran pledge.
The Prime Minister told the Commons the Government was continuing to pursue a "diplomatic course of action" to persuade Tehran to abandon its nuclear programme.
But pressed by Labour former minister Michael Meacher for a commitment that Britain would not support a US or Israeli attack "militarily, logistically or politically", Mr Brown would not be drawn.
"I will rule nothing out but I do tell him that I believe that the diplomatic route and the sanctions are both having an effect and if stepped up can have an even bigger effect in the future," he said.
He discussed the Iranian nuclear programme in talks on Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, while Iran's new chief negotiator Saeed Jalili and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana had a "constructive" meeting.
