WASHINGTON — The United States hopes Japan will suspend a major oil development deal with Iran if the International Atomic Energy Agency brings the case of Iran's alleged nuclear arms ambitions to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions, a senior U.S. official indicated Tuesday.

"They've got a clause that says that if the conclusion is the Iranians are continuing the pursuit of nuclear weapons, they have the ability to suspend that agreement," Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security John Bolton said. He was referring to an agreement Japan reached with Iran in February on a project in Azadegan, southern Iran, one of the world's largest oil fields.
