Iran is taking its sweet time responding to the UN Security Council on its offer of aid in exchange for the regime's suspension of uranium enrichment. Its latest excuse for not getting back with an answer is fear of hit squads. From AFP:

Iran postponed key talks in Brussels between its chief nuclear negotiator and the EU foreign policy chief until July 11 for fear of hit squads, the state news agency IRNA reported.

And after watching the Security Council's weak response to North Korea's missile volley the Iranian regime will likely continue the stall.
