The International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei warns the international community is losing patience with Iran but insists that military action is not the solution. However....
Washington has said no option is off the table in dealing with Iran's nuclear ambitions, and Israel has made it clear it will not allow its neighbour in the Middle East to obtain a nuclear weapon.
Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz stated Friday that while diplomatic channels remained the best way to deal with the Iran issue, "it is necessary to also prepare the other means."
On Friday, ElBaradei insisted that there was still a chance to find a diplomatic solution.
"But this window of opportunity is not forever," he said, adding that "the next couple of months are going to be very crucial."
By next March, he said he hoped "things will have moved in the right direction and that we're not talking about the Security Council".
