The US and its allies want the UN Security Council to ban the sale of missile and atomic technology to Iran and end most UN help for its nuclear programs - moves diplomats said are narrowly focused in hopes of winning Russian and Chinese backing for sanctions, it was reported on Tuesday night. The diplomats, who spoke with The Associated Press, said the proposal also would commit UN member nations to denying entry to Iranian officials involved in developing missiles or nuclear systems. A Security Council resolution passed last week imposed similar sanctions on the sale or transfer of technology that could contribute to North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs after that nation's test explosion of a nuclear bomb.

Moscow and Beijing could be formally presented with the draft later this week, the diplomat said.
