Former US secretary of state Madeleine Albright does not rule out a war against Iran in the nuclear dispute between Tehran and the international community.
'This last resort can never be given up completely,' the Czech-born Albright who also served as US ambassador to the United Nations, told Prague-based CT1 television.
'First negotiation has to take place, although Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says terrible things,' she insisted.
The 70-year-old described the situation in Iraq as 'worse than Vietnam at the time'. Albright also criticized the situation as 'the worst legacy' of outgoing US President George W. Bush.
