S. Korea conveys global concerns about Iran

South Korea's foreign minister has conveyed the international community's deep concerns over Iran's nuclear program, the Foreign Ministry said Monday. Song Min-soon called for Iran's "active steps to restore confidence in the international community over its nuclear program" during his talks with Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Mahdi Mostafavi on the sidelines of a regional security forum in Seoul, the ministry said. Song also expressed hopes for a peaceful and diplomatic resolution to the nuclear row. Mostafavi's comments were not immediately available. The meeting came as the UN Security Council prepares to debate another round of sanctions against Iran and turn the case over to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
