UNITED NATIONS - Belarus is the latest country that Western powers suspect of helping Iran skirt UN sanctions aimed at preventing it from expanding its ballistic missile and nuclear programs, Western diplomats told Reuters.

If the suspicions are confirmed, the already isolated Belarus would join China, Russia, Syria, North Korea, Turkey and other states Western powers believe have helped Tehran flout UN measures since the Security Council adopted its first sanctions resolution against Iran in late 2006.The suspicions were expected to be raised during a visit by several members of a UN panel of experts to Belarus this month to discuss compliance with the UN ban on selling Iran nuclear and missile technology, diplomats said.
