The standoff over Iran's nuclear program is a "crisis" in need of urgent attention by the international community, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Thursday. Annan, speaking at the Japan National Press Club, said only a negotiated settlement would resolve the dispute over Iran's uranium enrichment program. "It is a crisis in the sense we need to work very actively," Annan told reporters.
