Iran says draft sanctions resolution has “no chance”

-

Reuters: Iran on Wednesday said that a new round of sanctions had no chance of being approved in the U.N. Security Council and vowed that Tehran would go ahead with a fuel swap brokered by Brazil and Turkey.

DUSHANBE (Reuters) – Iran on Wednesday said that a new round of sanctions had no chance of being approved in the U.N. Security Council and vowed that Tehran would go ahead with a fuel swap brokered by Brazil and Turkey.

“There is no chance for a new resolution,” Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told reporters through an English-language interpreter when asked about the draft resolution, which was agreed by all five permanent members of the Security Council.

“A couple of the members of the Security Council have come up with a new recipe in their kitchen,” he said.

“It seems that this new dish they have prepared is not being given to the guests in a timely manner, and the guests have already had their lunch. Lets not take this seriously.”

The United States handed the draft resolution to the Security Council on Tuesday.

Mottaki said a uranium swap deal brokered by Brazil and Turkey “will go ahead.”

Mottaki was attending a meeting in the Tajik capital of foreign ministers from the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
