UN sanctions resolution on Iran 'fully agreed': Russia

8th June 2010, Comments 0 comments

The latest UN sanctions resolution against Iran has been fully agreed and no problems remain ahead of its adoption, a high-ranking Russian official close to the talks said on Tuesday.

"It (the resolution) is fully agreed upon," the official, who asked not to be named, told reporters.

"We do not see any problems for the adoption of the resolution," the official added.

Russia is one of five permanent, veto-wielding UN Security Council members.

Along with China, it has acted in the past to water down UN Security Council measures against Tehran. However over the last weeks there have been mounting signs of Russian frustration over Iran's defiance in the nuclear crisis.
