White House says still "time and space" for diplomacy on Iran


09:30, August 14, 2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- The White House on Monday reiterated that there is still "time and space" for diplomacy in dealing with Iran's nuclear standoff, vowing to continue the two- track approach of diplomacy and pressure.

"We regret that Iran has not yet made a strategic decision to address the international community's serious concerns regarding its nuclear program and the ongoing P5-plus-1 talks," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters at a press briefing. "However, we continue to believe that there is time and space for diplomacy. "

His remarks came at a time when Israeli media reported that the decision by the Jewish state to attack Iran's nuclear sites was looming. Carney stressed that "opportunity remains" for a peaceful resolution of the stalemate if Iran takes necessary steps to comply with its international obligations.
