CANADA SUPPORTS UN RESOLUTION IMPOSING ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS ON IRAN

The Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, today issued the following statement regarding the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1747 imposing additional sanctions on Iran.

“Canada fully supports the Resolution adopted unanimously today by the United Nations Security Council, which imposes additional sanctions on Iran for failing to implement the international obligations set out in Security Council Resolution 1737. As was the case with that Resolution, Canada will implement the measures contained in Resolution 1747 fully and expeditiously.

“Canada once again strongly urges Iran to comply with the international obligations set out by the Security Council, including the full and verified suspension of all enrichment, reprocessing and heavy water-related activities. Canada reminds Iran that doing so is key to the Security Council suspending measures against Iran and opening the way for negotiations on a mutually acceptable political settlement.

“It is also vital that Iran extend its full cooperation to the International Atomic Energy Agency. It is only through such cooperation that Iran can raise confidence in the peaceful nature of its nuclear program. Iran’s continued non-compliance with its international obligations will not be tolerated by the international community.”
