US Delays Plans on Sanctions Against Iran

The Obama Administration has reversed its push for sanctions against Iran by the end of March, with or without the UN Security Council. On February 25, 2010 Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak was given ‘the end of March’ in his talks with administration officials regarding sanctions against Iran. On March 2, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Security Council action would take ‘several months.’ The sudden reversal has taken tension off Tehran and left Israel in an uncertain situation.
