BERLIN - Foreign ministers of six leading countries, including the United States, agreed Tuesday on a new U.N. sanctions resolution aimed at the Iranian nuclear program.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who presided at the meeting in Berlin, told reporters at a news conference the draft will be submitted to the United Nations Security Council in a few days, Voice of America reported Tuesday.
Steinmeier urged Iranian leaders to work with other countries. The P5 Plus One countries involved in the talks also include Britain, China, France and Russia.
"Once again and with all urgency, we are making a common appeal to the leadership in Tehran to abide by the demands of the Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency without reservations," he said. "And I also say to Tehran that the choice is theirs whether they wish to cooperate and seek a resolution."
Sources told VOA the sanctions would include increased restrictions on travel for some Iranian officials and freezing of their assets.
