On Sunday, December 24 (New York time: Saturday, December 23), the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1737, which contains measures to be taken by Iran and the other Member States of the United Nations. Japan appreciates the adoption of this resolution which demonstrates the resolute and concerted stance of the international community towards Iran on this issue.
