London, Dec. 23 – Russia said that it would support a UN Security Council resolution imposing sanctions against Iran for failing to suspend its uranium enrichment activities.

The proposed resolution calls for the implementation of measures under Article 41 of Chapter Seven of the UN Charter, which provides for sanctions but does not authorise military action.

The resolution targets Tehran’s nuclear industry and ballistic missile program.

The U.S. and its European allies had been involved in intense diplomatic manoeuvring for weeks to get the backing of Russia and China, who both have huge economic contracts with Iran, for the resolution.

Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States are permanent members of the 15-member Security Council and have veto powers.

The council, currently presided over by Qatar, also includes Argentina, Denmark, Ghana, Greece, Japan, Peru, the Republic of the Congo, Slovakia, and Tanzania.
