Security Council Iran Resolution Marked for November

Posted by K.E. White on October 3, 2007

Expect a new Security Council resolution on Iran in November, after reports from the IAEA and the European Union.

From the Voice of America:

Six major powers – Germany, France, the United Kingdom, China, Russia, and the United States – have agreed to continue discussions on the text of a new United Nations Security Council resolution concerning Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability. Since December 2006, the Security Council has unanimously adopted two resolutions imposing sanctions on Iran for failing to suspend all uranium enrichment-related and reprocessing activities. Highly enriched uranium can be used to make nuclear weapons.

The P-5 plus one countries agreed to postpone until November adopting new sanctions on Iran, pending reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency, or I.A.E.A, and Javier Solano, the European Union High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy. Mohamed ElBaradei, the Director General of the I.A.E.A., will report on whether Iran has complied fully with its recent agreement to resolve all questions concerning its nuclear activities, especially its P-1 and P-2 centrifuge programs.
