German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that Iran's response to a package aimed at blunting concerns over its nuclear program appears unsatisfactory and is missing a "decisive sentence" on whether it would halt uranium enrichment. "We are still examining it, but from everything that I hear we cannot be satisfied," Merkel said in an interview with N24 television. The UN Security Council has set an Aug. 31 deadline for Iran to halt uranium enrichment or face the risk of economic and political sanctions.
