London, IRNA -- The International Atomic Energy Agency's Board of Governors on Wednesday adopted a resolution against Iran, which was drafted by the United States and its three European allies, the UK, Germany and France.
According to a tweet by Mikhail Ulyanov, Russian Ambassador to Vienna-based international organizations, Russia and China voted against the resolution.
India, Libya and Pakistan abstained, while the rest of the 35-member Board of Governors voted in favor.
"Countries which represent more than 1/2 of mankind didn't support the resolution," Ulyanov said on his twitter page.
The resolution has expressed concern over "the presence of nuclear material at three undeclared Iranian sites", demanding the country fully cooperate with the IAEA.
The resolution also calls on Iran to "act on an urgent basis to fulfill its legal obligations and take up immediately the IAEA director general's offer of further engagement to clarify and resolve all outstanding safeguards issues."
Tehran has already warned against the anti-Iran resolution and promised a proportionate response.
Russian Representative Ulyanov had warned against the resolution too.
Prior to the voting at the Board of Governors, he said that the measure will increase tensions with Tehran.
