Israel says "very far" from decision to attack Iran

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday any decision about an Israeli attack on Iran was "very far off."

Barak was speaking on Israel's Army Radio ahead of a planned visit this week by the United States armed forces chief General Martin Dempsey that has fired speculation Washington would press Israel to delay any action against Tehran's nuclear program.
