Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso urged Iran on Sunday to suspend its nuclear activities and return to negotiations after the UN Security Council approved a resolution on Iran. The Security Council voted unanimously to impose sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment. The Iranian government immediately rejected the resolution. "It is Japan's strong wish that this issue will be resolved peacefully through negotiation," Aso said in a statement. "Japan strongly expects that Iran will abide by the requiremens of this resolution including the suspension on all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities and return to the negotiation process," he said.
