UN Ambassador Rice Defends Sanctions on Iran

"We're very concerned about the circumstances of these two journalists," Rice said. "We are communicating directly through a third country that represents our interests in North Korea. Our concern for these Americans in taking every possible action that we can to ensure their safe and swift release."

While Rice explained that "of course we have no guarantees," she said "we don't have any reason to be certain that they'll put on trial. We remain hopeful that their release may be possible swiftly and safely."
