Iran buying time ...

From THE JERUSALEM POST, by JPost and AP, Nov. 16, 2007:

The IAEA's report on Iran's nuclear activities released Thursday makes it clear that ....that nation continues to buck UN demands and develop its nuclear program, Israel said Friday.

...the long-awaited report ... warned that its knowledge of Teheran's present atomic work was shrinking.

The report also confirmed that Teheran continued to defy the UN Security Council by ignoring its repeated demands to freeze uranium enrichment ...

..... on Friday, Britain's Foreign Office said that talks planned for next week to discuss hardening sanctions over Iran's nuclear program have been postponed....

...A European Union official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Chinese could not attend due to scheduling problems. China, along with Russia, is opposed to a hardening of sanctions against Teheran.

....Russia's Itar-Tass news agency reported the meeting had been postponed because China had refused to attend.
