The United States expects agreement in the next few weeks on a resolution imposing new UN sanctions on Iran for its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment and rein in its nuclear program, US Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad said Thursday. He said the US hopes to prepare the groundwork for the new resolution at a meeting in Washington on Friday of political directors from six key nations that have been trying to negotiate with Iran - the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany - and at a follow-up ministerial meeting in New York next Friday. "I expect the issue to be transferred to New York, to the Security Council, in the next several weeks," Khalilzad said in an interview with three reporters. "We expect that we would ... get an agreement in the next few weeks. That's our expectation. That's what we're working towards."
