Diplomats Agree on U.N. Statement on Iran

UNITED NATIONS — The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council agreed on a statement Wednesday demanding that Iran suspend uranium enrichment, setting the stage for the first action by the powerful body over fears that Tehran wants a nuclear weapon.

The 15 members of the council planned to meet later Wednesday to approve the statement, the text of which was not immediately disclosed. …

Diplomats said the statement, which is not legally binding will ask International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei to report back in 30 days on Iran’s compliance with the demands.

Once again the major problem with the U.N. is evident. “[T]he statement, which is not legally binding”, meaning Iran has no incentive to comply… Nice.
