Security Council receives IAEA report on Iran

-

AFP: The UN Security Council has received the International Atomic Energy Agency report on Iran, its president, Chinese Ambassador Wang Guangya, told reporters Friday. UNITED NATIONS, April 28, 2006 (AFP) – The UN Security Council has received the International Atomic Energy Agency report on Iran, its president, Chinese Ambassador Wang Guangya, told reporters Friday.

Friday was the deadline for Iran to meet UN demands that it end uranium enrichment activities.

Wang, who presides over the 15-member council for April, said he had just received the report from IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei on Iran’s compliance with the demands set in a UN Security Council statement made on March 29.

“It is my intention to circulate it to other members of the Council,” he noted.

In his report, ElBaradei said Tehran had failed to comply with the 30-day UN deadline, a move which could trigger Security Council sanctions.

The IAEA said Iran had offered to provide a timetable for cooperation with UN nuclear inspectors if the UN nuclear watchdog, rather than the Security Council, oversees Iranian compliance.

US, British and French diplomats here said they expected to present some time next week a Chapter 7 resolution in the Security Council to make legally binding the UN demands that Tehran comply with its nuclear non-proliferation obligations.

“We believe the next step is a Chapter 7 resolution making mandatory the existing IAEA resolutions,” US Ambassador John Bolton said, making it clear that this would not be a sanctions resolution.

Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which is invoked in case of threats to international peace and security, can open the door to sanctions or even military action.
