Tehran, May 6, IRNA
The five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (5+1 Group) will meet in New York on Monday at a banquet to finalize the draft resolution proposed by Britain and France against Iran's nuclear issue.

The session will be held as the US, seeking hegemony over other UNSC member states, is responsible for the failure of the earlier meetings to find a solution to the issue.

The spokesman to US State Department, Sean McCormack, said on Thursday that the UNSC member states should be strict about approving the resolution against Iran.

Speaking to reporters in Washington, he hoped that voting on the resolution will take place soon.

"All UNSC members know what they should do. The draft of this resolution, quite similar to the declaration issued by the head of UNSC and Board of Governors, is merely based on Chapter 7 of the UN Charter. We believe that now Chapter 7 should be applied," he added.

This is while France and Britain, as the US allies, drew up the draft of a new resolution which can pave the way for sanctions against Iran.

However, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) referred to the disagreement of Russia and China with the new resolution, given that it is based on UN Charter's Chapter 7, which eventually can result in sanctions and even military action against Iran.

Meanwhile, a foreign diplomat to the UN said that Russian and Chinese officials are aware that under the cover of Iran's nuclear issue, the US is determined to control these two countries in the coming years.

In fact, the US seeks to make Russia and China kneel down to it by exercising its power over Iran's nuclear dossier.

However, the Russian and Chinese statesmen are well aware that with its bluffs against Tehran, Washington can only manage to make the countries which are militarily and economically dependent on the US obey it.

Political experts believe that upon disintegration of the former Soviet Union, Washington got the idea of being the sole global power and therefore can disregard the veto rights of other UNSC member states and thus impose its own policies on the world by influencing the UN Security Council's ratifications.
