Turkey wants details on proposed Iran sanctions

WASHINGTON — Turkey says the big powers on the UN Security Council are not keeping other members informed about sanctions against Iran being discussed.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told reporters in Washington on Wednesday that his country still opposes sanctions against one of its important neighbors.
Davutoglu said the five permanent members of the Security Council have not provided any details to rotating members, including Turkey, about the content of sanctions being discussed. He added: "How can we decide if we don't have any idea about the sanctions?"
Davutoglu made clear that Turkey did not believe that any sanctions would help defuse the controversy over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
