UN plan for Iran sanctions likely soon

Nov 30, -0001
BRUSSELS: A new round of United Nations sanctions against Iran could be adopted "very rapidly", the European Union's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, said on Monday.

"We are supporting the process of the Security Council on new restrictive measures and I believe a proposal will be adopted very rapidly," she told a news conference after a regular meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

"I anticipate we'll be talking about the next four to six weeks, though I can't be certain at this stage," she said. AGENCIES
