London, Feb. 15 – Switzerland has imposed sanctions on Iran for its failure to heed demands by the United Nations Security Council that it suspend its uranium enrichment activities, the website Swissinfo reported.

In December, the Security Council voted unanimously to slap sanctions on Tehran. The decision is binding for all member states of the UN.

Complying with the UN order, the Swiss cabinet announced on Wednesday an embargo on all goods that could serve Iran’s nuclear or ballistic missile programs. The Swiss authorities have also frozen a number of Iranian assets, the report said.

The move came two days after Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey held informal discussions with Iran’s national security chief Ali Larijani on the nuclear stand-off.
