The issue was not whether Iran has “modified its diplomatic vocabulary…but whether it is addressing seriously and in a timely manner outstanding issues that have remained unresolved for too long.”

Chorev castigated Iran for “deception and concealment, creating a false impression about the status of its engagement with the agency…with a view to buy more time in Iran’s daily inching forward in every aspect of its nuclear military program.”
