b.European Union foreign ministers threatened to increase pressure on Iran Monday over its controversial nuclear programme but stood dividedon wielding the threat of military action.
What does the bold phrase mean? (continued to be/remain in disagreement)
Can I replace it by "but stand(which was) divided on wielding the threat of military action"? I don't understand your parenthetical "which was", but "stand" would indicate that the foreign ministers continue to disagree.Thank for help!
