The United States warned on Tuesday that Iran will face new international isolation and sanctions after refusing to comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions over its disputed nuclear program.

"The Iranian government continues to be in violation of multiple United Nations Security Council resolutions and with each step it takes it continues to isolate its people and risk further international financial and diplomatic sanctions," U.S. National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe told reporters.

With regard to Iran's nuclear issue, White House press secretary Dana Perino also vowed to continue American effort to increase global pressure on Iran.

"What we have decided to do as a community, as an international community is to continue to keep that pressure on," she said.

Johndroe and Perino made the remarks hours after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Iran has begun installing 6,000 new centrifuges at its uranium enrichment plant.

Prior to its latest nuclear development, Iran has already installed around 3,000 centrifuges at an underground enrichment facility at Natanz, in central Iran, according to a statement by Ahmadinejad in Nov. 2007.

The United States and its Western allies fear that Tehran is trying to build nuclear weapons. Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

The U.N. Security Council has imposed three sanctions against Tehran's nuclear program since Dec. 2006.
