A proposed UN Security Council resolution would give Iran a short time to suspend uranium enrichment and construction of a nuclear reactor that produces plutonium or face the prospect of economic and diplomatic sanctions, a council diplomat said Tuesday. It calls for the suspension to be verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog, and other international experts, the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the draft had not yet been circulated to all council members. The five veto-wielding council members and Germany, who have been the key players in negotiations with Iran, met for the first time Tuesday morning to start work on the Iran resolution. "It's still our hope to adopt the resolution this week if at all possible, and we don't see that there should be major objections to that," US Ambassador John Bolton told reporters after the meeting.
