UN Security Council Agree on Iran

Powerful members of the U.N. Security Council agreed today that Iran must fully suspend its nuclear program, Britain's Foreign Office said following a meeting aimed at forging a common response to Tehran's decision to resume uranium enrichment activities.

Diplomats also announced plans to call for an emergency meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency board of directors on Feb. 2-3 to discuss what action to take against Tehran for removing some U.N. seals from its main uranium enrichment facility in Natanz last week.

Warning Iran over the confrontation with the international community on its nuclear programme , Mohamed ElBaradei, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Sunday that despite intensive three years of verification of Iranian nuclear programme, he was unable to make a judgment on its peaceful nature.
