The United States supports a draft UN sanctions resolution against Iran even though it omits a mandatory travel ban against several Iranians involved in the country's nuclear and missile programs, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday. Rice said she expects changes to be made in the draft before it is put to a vote at the United Nations Security Council, perhaps on Friday. Speaking at a news conference with Canadian Foreign Minister Peter MacKay, she offered no details of the revisions she expects. "It's no secret we would have preferred to have this earlier had we been the lone drafter, and of course there might have been other things of it," she said of the draft, which was circulated by Britain and France.
