BRASILIA, Brazil— Brazil and Turkey urged the UN Security Council to refrain from more sanctions for Iran, saying Wednesday a compromise they brokered this week is the best way to resolve the dispute over Tehran's nuclear program.

In a letter sent to nations with seats on the Security Council, the two countries criticized a US-proposed draft resolution that seeks harsher penalties against Tehran for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

"Brazil and Turkey are convinced that it is time to give a chance for negotiations and to avoid measures that are detrimental to a peaceful solution of this matter," the letter said.

It asked the five permanent members of the Security Council — China, France, Britain, Russia and the United States — to reconsider their compromise, which calls for Iran to deposit 1,200 kilograms of lightly enriched uranium in Turkey in exchange for 120 kilograms of nuclear reactor fuel.
