The State Department spokesperson Ned Price also said yesterday the US will work closely with its allies and partners and the IAEA board “to ensure that the board takes appropriate action in response” to the new IAEA reports.

We know this, the world knows this."

The Iranian spokesman added that it is time for the "E3/US to stop pretending to be asleep. They can pursue diplomacy—or pursue the opposite. We're ready for both."

Khatibzadeh also warned in a statement that "We [Iran] respond resolutely and appropriately to any unconstructive action in the Board of Governors, and those who view the Board of Governors and the Director General's report as a leverage and play political games against Iran must be held to account for the consequences."
