Annan: Military intervention in Iran "disastrous"

December 20, 2006 06:12

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan called for key parties to seek a negotiated settlement with Iran over its nuclear program and warned that military intervention would be "unwise and disastrous." Annan issued the warning Tuesday as the Security Council debated a resolution that would impose sanctions on Tehran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment and as the United States considered sending a second aircraft carrier to the Gulf as a show of force against Iran. After two rounds of closed-doors talks Tuesday, the six key nations trying to negotiate with Iran - Britain, France, Germany, the US, Russia and China - remain divided on the scope of sanctions. They scheduled another meeting on Wednesday.
