Iran question likely to be answered in 2013: Barak

Whether Iran will rein in its nuclear programme or push ahead with its suspected bid for a weapons capability is likely to become clear by the end of 2013, Israel's Ehud Barak said on Monday. "Iran remains the central challenge this year, and it is possible we’ll see the direction determined by the end of the year," the outgoing defence minister told members of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and defence.
