U.N. to Open up New Sanctions against Iran
The U.N. is going to open up with a new round of sanctions against Iran, by the end of June. But for now, a draft proposal hasn’t been submitted to the Security Council. On the other hand, Brazil has been working with Iran towards ceasing those nuclear weapons program, in hopes of slowing down the presentation of that draft to the United Nations Security Council.
The Iranian government is facing a lot of pressure and it is evident that, by the end of June, the European, Chinese and U.S. partners are going to exert pressure on Iran, against the nuclear power it possesses. It seems as if the European side is itchier about disarming and stripping Iran off of any nuclear assets, because they said that a draft against Iran is supposed to be presented in a 15 member council.
Iran’s foreign minister – Manouchehr Mottaki is involved in negotiations with the U.N. Security Council and he tried to reiterate the possibility of a uranium swap that would probably cease the draft submission process against Iran.
By the time, the draft will be approved for a final copy, it is being hoped that the Iranians will engage themselves in something positive finally. Something that would “persuade” the Iranian government to call it quits on their nuclear assets and ongoing nuclear weapons programs.
