IAEA Stalls, Iran Referral Delayed

True to historical UN/IAEA form, the IAEA meeting to refer Iran is being stalled, even after the Permanent 5 of the UN Security Council have effctively demanded a referral.

The delay was due to continuing haggling between European Union powers and developing states on the text of an EU-sponsored resolution to notify the council of Iran's case, diplomats said.

This should not surprise. ElBaredei said himself yesterday that the Iranian nuclear crisis is “reaching a critical phase but it is not a crisis.”

This will develop throughout the day. Check here for the latest reports.
