Foreign ministers to meet in Berlin on Iran nukes

Foreign ministers or deputies from the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany meet in Berlin on Thursday to discuss Iran strategies after the council for the first time demanded that Tehran clear up suspicions that it is seeking nuclear weapons. On the eve of the ministers' meeting, the 15-member Security Council approved a statement asking the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, to report back in 30 days on Iran's compliance with demands to stop enriching uranium. The statement takes into account Russian and Chinese reservations about too much toughness, while meeting US, French and British calls for keeping the pressure on Tehran.
