Prodding Iran

The week's news at a glance.

Vienna

At their summit in Vienna this week, the United States and the European Union reaffirmed that Iran must stop enriching uranium before any talks on its nuclear programs take place. When Iran sent word that it was considering the proposal and would respond by mid-August, President Bush complained that the regime was stalling. “It shouldn’t take the Iranians that long to analyze what’s a reasonable deal,” he said. Like most of Bush’s visits to Europe, this one was greeted with protests. More than 1,000 people marched through the streets of Vienna, some carrying signs that read “World’s No. 1 Terrorist.” Protestors demanded the closure of the U.S. prison camp at Guantánamo Bay.
