Just hours after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the US expected Iran to respond to diplomatic overtures regarding its nuclear program "now," the European Union issued a similar call, saying that the Islamic republic had but a few months to resolve the issue. Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, whose country holds the EU presidency, said the international community faces "difficult choices in the next ... weeks or months, but not very much longer than that" to force Iran to improve relations by backing off its nuclear program. His comment to the European Parliament was the EU's first mention of a rough deadline for additional sanctions against Iran, putting the Europeans in synch with Washington.
