Clinton anticipates 'further consultation' on Iranian issue

WASHINGTON — Six major world powers have agreed to begin putting together proposed new sanctions on Iran over its suspect nuclear program after China dropped its opposition, US officials, among them US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, announced late Wednesday.
Speaking at the UN, Clinton said the officials had "accurately described" the position of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany. She did not elaborate but said the group, known as the "P5-plus-one," was unified.
"There will be a great deal of further consultation, not only among the P5-plus-one but other members of the Security Council and other member nations during the next weeks," she told reporters.
