Diplomats from the UN Security Council's five permanent members plus Germany will meet in Paris on Tuesday to discuss imposing penalties on Iran for refusing to stop uranium enrichment. The six powers, which have been seeking a UN resolution to punish Iran for its nuclear program, were nearing agreement on a text, France's Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said Monday in Brussels. "I think that we should now reach agreement on this," he said, and indicated progress had been made in resolving differences with Russia in a meeting with that country's foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov. "We are in agreement with Russia to adopt sanctions against Iran's proliferation program, that is to say, the sensitive nuclear activities and the ballistic missile program," Douste-Blazy said, but gave no details of the possible text.
