Asahi reported on its exclusive interview with Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation Ford in Washington on Monday, quoting him as saying that Iran’s uranium enrichment above the nuclear deal limit is absolutely unacceptable. The paper also quoted the USG official as saying that in order to resolve all of the problems related to Iran, the United States will continue to apply maximum pressure on Tehran to provide the nation with an incentive to negotiate with Washington. The paper speculated that the United States and Iran will engage in heated debate at an IAEA meeting slated for Wednesday. Quoting Assistant Secretary Ford as reportedly saying that Washington hopes all of the responsible parties in the international community will side with the United States, the paper interpreted this remark as a call on the IAEA members, including European nations and Japan, to join a “coalition against Iran.”
