The world’s major powers agreed on Friday to delay a vote on tougher sanctions on Iran until late November at the earliest, depending on reports by the U.N. nuclear watchdog and a European Union negotiator.
The outcome was a temporary setback for the United States and France, which had sought swifter action to step up economic and political pressure on the Islamic Republic over its refusal to halt uranium enrichment, which the West suspects is aimed at developing nuclear arms.
More delay and obfuscation.
Face it folks. Russia, China and Germany have too many trade ties to Iran to vote harsh economic sanctions.
Flap continues to wonder why President Bush is waiting?
