The Bush administration said it hopes the UN resolution penalizing Iran for its nuclear enrichment program will clear the way for tougher measures against Teheran by individual countries, particularly Russia. "We don't think this resolution is enough in itself," Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns said Saturday. "We want the international community to take further action. We're certainly not going to put all our eggs in the UN basket." Approval of the resolution under a part of the UN Charter that makes it binding is "going to be humiliating for Iran," Burns told reporters after the unanimous vote by the Security Council earlier Saturday.
