Asked whether the Prime Minister would be calming America down about Iran and seeking more diplomacy, the PMOS said the Americans had stated their position. The White House spokesman had said explicitly, about a month ago, that Iran was not Iraq. The situations were different. People could look at the support America had given to the diplomatic efforts of the E3 (Britain, France and Germany). At the same time we were fully supportive of the view, not only of America but other world leaders such as Chancellor Merkel, that Iran had crossed a red line and failed its international obligations. Therefore the assumption in the question that America was in a different place from the rest of the world was undermined, not only by the views of others, but by the actions of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which had passed by a very large majority that the matter be reported to the UN Security Council.
