US/EU taking Iran to Security Council


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department said on Wednesday that it was now “more likely than ever” that Iran would be hauled before the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear program.

“It is more likely than ever that this will happen,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters, speaking a day after Iran said it would resume research and development on producing uranium fuel, prompting angry reactions from Washington, the European Union and Russia.

Asked by reporters about Washington’s aims in seeking to get Iran referred to the Security Council, McCormack said “we still seek to change Iranian behavior through diplomatic channels.”
