France said Tuesday it hopes to circulate a draft UN resolution by the end of the week that is expected to call for sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment and return to negotiations on its nuclear program. France's UN Ambassador Jean-Marc de La Sabliere said France, Britain and Germany - who have led negotiations with Iran - were still working on the Security Council resolution. "I hope that the text can be circulated by the end of the week," he said. European Union foreign ministers said after a meeting in Luxembourg on Tuesday that they have no choice but to back diplomatic talks at the United Nations about sanctions on Iran. The ministers backed a decision by the UN's five permanent Security Council members - the US, Russia, China, Britain and France - and Germany to pursue limited sanctions on Tehran while keeping the door open to future talks.
