Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran Urges Patience

AP: Iran urges patience as it considers deal

Iran said Sunday it was seriously considering incentives to halt its nuclear program and asked the United States and other nations to be patient while Tehran weighs its response.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters that specialized committees in key state agencies were studying the nuclear incentives offered June 6 by the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.

“The package contains legal, political and economic dimensions. All its dimensions have to be studied,” Asefi said. “We recommend to Europeans that accuracy should not be sacrificed for the sake of speed.”

Asefi said the package required careful study before Tehran delivered its formal response.

“The reason that there can’t be a speedy response is that we have to hold serious discussions on the contents,” he said. “We are taking it seriously.”

Iran is the “MASTER” OF stall and obfuscate. A reasonable nation-state would agree in principle pending negotiation of details. Of course, Iran would have to agree to the immediate cessation of uranium enrichment. This Iran will NOT do.

So, why wait?

Next stop is the United Nations Security Council…….

Stay tuned……
