Russia, China say “no” to anti-Iran resolution- report

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, Nov 17, IRNA -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors will start a two-day meeting shortly amid reports that the US, France and the UK have already failed to persuade Russia and China to vote in favor of a “strongly worded” anti-Iran resolution.

Following the decline of China and Russia, representatives of the three western states made changes in the draft of their anti-Iran resolution to satisfy Moscow and Beijing to encourage them to join them in their anti-Iran approach.

Diplomats believe that the present mild is clearly at attempt on the part of the three countries to attract Russia and China since it does not seek any concrete actions against the Islamic Republic of Iran like referring its case once again to the United Nations Security Council.
According to the diplomats in the IAEA headquarters, there have been no agreements on the issue so far.

Prior to publishing of a report on Iran’s nuclear program by the IAEA chief Yukiya Amano, Beijing and Moscow had warned him to act independently and fairly.

Despite their warning, Amano in his new report raised an old issue which had been dealt with Iranian officials four years ago.
