US President George W. Bush on Wednesday accused Iran of dragging its feet on a Western package of incentives aimed at getting Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment activity. "We'll come to the table when they verifiably suspend. Period," Bush said at an annual US-European Union summit in Vienna. He said that the mid-August timetable "seems like an awfully long time" to wait for an answer. "It shouldn't take the Iranians that long to analyze what's a reasonable deal," Bush said.
