Another view of the situation

This article says Germany and America disagree,

but I happen to have another view what was said.

Quote one:
FOREIGN MINISTER FISCHER: Well, first of all, I think it's very important that
we are moving forward, based on realism, and realism must be based on
transparency and these are the basic principles of the agreement, the three of
us, the Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom, France and myself reached with
the Iranian side in Tehran.

I think we are moving in the right direction, but we must go now into the
details. It means full compliance, and this must be measured by the IAEO. So,
if we are moving in the right direction, I think it's a good message, but it
must be based, once again, on realism.

Quote Two:
"realism means making sure that the Iranians tell us every single thing
there is to know about what they have been doing with respect to nuclear
developments of all kinds so that the international community can make an
informed, comprehensive and full judgment as to what they have been doing and
whether they have stopped doing the things that we have been suggesting for
some time they were doing, that were inconsistent with their obligations and
should cause all of us to have serious concerns about judging too quickly
whether or not we have now received the full and complete story from the

interesting isn't it,. It just depends on what you want to write which quotes you actually use.

note the actual transcript of the entire news conference was sent to my inbox curtsey of the DOS list sever, which the link can be found below.
