Malaysia recalled its envoy to the United Nations in Vienna on Sunday after the representative voted against a resolution censuring Iran over its nuclear program. The government did not specify whether the vote was against its policy. The 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency passed the resolution demanding Iran freeze uranium enrichment Nov. 27. Only Malaysia, Cuba and Venezuela voted against. The Malaysian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the envoy - whom it did not name - has been ordered to return to Malaysia for consultation because "the voting was not in accordance with the procedures of the government." Ministry officials could not immediately be reached Sunday to elaborate on the statement.
