South Africa voices doubts about new Iran sanctions


www.reuters.com

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. Security Council member South Africa on Tuesday expressed reservations about the timing of a draft sanctions resolution against Iran for its nuclear program as well as some of its provisions.

Last month the five permanent U.N. Security Council members -- Britain, the United States, France, Russia and China -- along with Germany circulated a proposal for a third sanctions resolution against Iran calling for mandatory travel bans, asset freezes and vigilance on all banks in Iran. The text was obtained by Reuters.

The United States and France want the draft resolution to be put to a vote as soon as possible. But South Africa, a key member of the Non-Aligned Movement, wants to see an International Atomic Energy Agency report on Iran due later this month before voting.

This is good IMO. The more leaders step up and question the states bullying and rushing their agendas, the less they can pull the rug under everyone's feet like they have in the past. Good for them.
