UK: Iran nuclear issue may go before UN next week

October 3, 2006 18:05

The United Nations Security Council will begin discussing economic sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program "in the next week or so," unless Iran has a sudden change of heart, a senior British official said Tuesday. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, in keeping with government rules regarding background briefings, said that EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana's latest round of telephone talks with Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, had failed to secure a suspension of Iran's nuclear enrichment program. "Unless there is a sudden, unexpected change of heart by the Iranians, we can expect this to move to New York in the coming week or so," he said.
