U.S. still expects U.N. statement on Iran – envoy

-

Reuters: The United States still believes the U.N. Security Council can reach agreement in coming days on a statement calling on Iran to suspend uranium enrichment activities, a senior envoy said on Wednesday.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The United States still believes the U.N. Security Council can reach agreement in coming days on a statement calling on Iran to suspend uranium enrichment activities, a senior envoy said on Wednesday.

“I would expect in the coming days we’ll see a statement coming from the Security Council …,” Gregory Schulte, U.S. ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) told Reuters TV during a visit to Brussels.

He said such a statement would request that Tehran implement a resolution by U.N. nuclear watchdog’s board of governors calling on it to suspend enrichment activities, which critics say are aimed at developing atomic weapons.

The Security Council failed to reach accord on a text on Tuesday after days of intensive negotiation amid resistance from Russia and China.
