World powers gearing up for Iran sanctions

Reuters: Six world powers are preparing to draft U.N. sanctions against Iran given the failure of high level talks so far to yield an Iranian promise to halt sensitive atomic work, a senior British official said on Tuesday. LONDON (Reuters) – Six world powers are preparing to draft U.N. sanctions against Iran given the failure of high level talks so far to yield an Iranian promise to halt sensitive atomic work, a senior British official said on Tuesday.

He said European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, trying to coax Iran into halting enrichment, reported back to EU countries and the United States at the weekend that top Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani had given a clear “no”.

“We are intensifying preparatory efforts for what should be in a resolution,” the British official said.

“(British Foreign Secretary) Margaret Beckett was talking to her counterparts over the weekend … Unless there is a sudden and unexpected change of heart by the Iranians, we can expect this to move to New York in the coming week or so.”

“Solana reported that Larijani had made clear to him last week that Iran was not prepared to resume suspension. That’s the position that President Ahmadinejad and others had been stating in public. It came through clearly from Larijani to Solana and Solana has accordingly reported back,” the official said.
