U.S. downplays Iran's "hype" on nuclear advances
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Wednesday downplayed Iran's latest announcement of nuclear progress, saying Tehran's reported advances were "not terribly new and not terribly impressive."
"We frankly don't see a lot new here. This is not big news. In fact it seems to have been hyped," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
