‘Still time for diplomacy with Iran’

US: I believe there is a window of time to solve this diplomatically but that window is closing.” After having repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “all options” mantra over its nuclear energy program, the US president says there is still time to resolve the Western standoff with Iran through diplomacy.

“I believe there is a window of time to solve this diplomatically but that window is closing,” Barack Obama told reporters on Sunday.

Obama made the comments after talks with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on the eve of a nuclear security summit in Seoul. The US, Israel and some of their allies have accused Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program.

The US and the EU have used this pretext to impose sanctions against Tehran, while Tel Aviv has issued threats of a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Washington has also repeatedly threatened the Islamic Republic with “all options” on the table. Iran has refuted the allegations, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Tehran is entitled to peaceful use of nuclear technology. The IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities, but has never found any evidence indicating that Tehran's nuclear energy program has been diverted towards nuclear weapons production.
