Clinton: China, S'pore making progress on Iran oil

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says China and Singapore are making progress in reducing imports of Iranian oil as a deadline hits on sanctions to pressure Iran to prove its nuclear program is peaceful.
Speaking in Latvia on Thursday _ the deadline for a decision on sanctions _ Clinton says China and Singapore share the goal of keeping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. She says they have cut back on purchases of Iranian oil but gave no indication the two countries will get exemptions.
Clinton has already exempted nearly all of the world's major importers of Iranian oil except China and Singapore from the sanctions designed to choke the Iranian economy.
