unsc Iran faces new UN sanctions

UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK: The UN Security Council is voting on a draft resolution imposing a fourth round of sanctions on Iran in response to its nuclear defiance.

  • Sanctions vote is all but certain to pass, after receiving support from the five permanent, veto-wielding members of the Council: the US, UK, France, China and Russia.
  • Resolution would impose new financial restrictions on Iran, expand an existing arms embargo, and authorize greater stop and search of Iranian cargo ships.
  • Brazil and Turkey, both non-permanent members of the Security Council, oppose new resolution, which ignores a proposed nuclear fuel swap agreed by the two countries with Iran last month.
