UN Security Council to vote on Iran sanction Wednesday: council president

UNITED NATIONS, June 8 (Xinhua) – The UN Security Council is to vote on a draft resolution on Wednesday morning to impose sanctions on Iran over its suspect nuclear work, the council president said Tuesday.

“The co-sponsors of the draft resolution on Iran have announced that the resolution would be submitted to the vote tomorrow morning,” Mexico’s UN ambassador Claude Heller, the council president for this month, told reporters here.

The council president, who spoke after another round of informal consultations among the 15 council members, said that Turkey and Brazil had asked the council to have “a substantive debate” on the Iranian nuclear issue.

“We had this exchange this morning, and at the same time we took decision – by all the members of the Security Council – to have a private session this afternoon,” Heller said.
