Kerry: Iran Will Be Judged by its Actions
The United States will not take Iran at its word over pledges of openness regarding its suspected nuclear weapons program, Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters from AFP Thursday, after Israel threatened to act against Tehran.
The top US diplomat said the new mood by Iran of cooperation that was on display around the United Nations General Assembly in New York had to be backed up by quantifiable deeds.
"I assure (Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu and the people of Israel that nothing that we do is going to be based on trust," Kerry told reporters in Tokyo.
