London, Mar. 30 – United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Wednesday that a statement adopted unanimously by the United Nations Security Council calling on Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment program sent Tehran an “unmistakable message”.

“Iran is more isolated now than ever”, Rice said in a statement.

“The Security Council’s Presidential Statement sends an unmistakable message to Iran that its efforts to conceal its nuclear program and evade its international obligations are unacceptable”, she said.

On Wednesday, the Security Council gave Iran 30 days to suspend its uranium enrichment program and resume its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“The adoption today by the UN Security Council of a Presidential Statement on Iran is an important diplomatic step. It demonstrates that the international community is united in its concern over Iran’s nuclear program”, Rice said.

“The international community expects Iran to comply with the IAEA’s call to suspend all enrichment-related activity and to return to negotiations”, she said, adding, “I look forward to my discussions with our P-5 partners and Germany tomorrow in Berlin to explore further action on Iran”.

U.S. State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters in his press briefing on Wednesday that the ministers of the five permanent members of the Security Council – Britain, France, Russia, China, and the U.S. – as well as Germany would discuss possible future action against Tehran over its suspected nuclear weapons program during Thursday’s meeting in Berlin.

“There are a number of diplomatic levers that are available to the international community, both acting as a community, as groups of nations and as individual nations. So I would expect that the P-5 + 1 member ministers represented at the Berlin meeting are going to have a discussion about their thoughts about what the medium and long term will hold”, McCormack said.

“But ultimately the key to resolving this is the Iranian regime making a decision to change its behaviour, to suspend its uranium enrichment programs, to seek to engage the international community in a serious manner, and to come back into the mainstream of the non-proliferation framework”, he added.
