The latest report of the IAEA on Iran's nuclear programme is sharp and clear. The contrast with last August's tone and content is striking. Then there was confidence that three months of the "workplan" would resolve outstanding issues. Now there is a lengthening list of questions and serious concern from the Agency that their questions are not being answered.
The reason for the change is simple. Iran has not responded adequately to questions about its nuclear programme. This is not about a vendetta against Iran or the Iranian people. It is about a concern to curb proliferation. That is why the dual track policy of incentives for cooperation and sanctions for proliferation is so important.
