Ambassadors from China and five major powers met for the first time Thursday to discuss possible new sanctions against Iran, which is refusing to suspend uranium enrichment and start negotiations on its suspect nuclear program.

After nearly three hours of talks, Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters "we all agreed that it was a good discussion."

Churkin cautioned, however, that there were difficult negotiations on the three previous resolutions imposing sanctions against Iran and said he expects difficult negotiations on a fourth sanctions resolution as well.

"I don't think any of us want to impose sanctions," he said. "What we want to have is a diplomatic solution, and all sorts of constructive proposals have been made to Iran. So if ... Iran wants to negotiate they should start negotiating."
