Security Council adopts another meaningless resolution on Iran

The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution that reaffirms its previous resolutions on Iran. It did not adopt any further sanctions.
The UN Security Council on Saturday unanimously adopted a draft resolution again urging Iran to suspend its sensitive nuclear fuel work but offering no new sanctions and merely reaffirming existing ones.

Resolution 1835 calls on Iran "to fully comply and without delay with its obligations (under relevant UN resolutions) and to meet the requirement of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) board of governors."

US Ambassador to the UN Zalmay Khalilzad immediately welcomed the adoption of the resolution by all 15 council members.

"It shows that the world community is united on this issue, that Iran must cooperate," he added, stressing that the nuclear standoff with Tehran should be resolved "through diplomacy, through the two-track approach" of dialogue, including the offer of economic incentive by six major powers, and sanctions.

The resolution also reaffirmed the council's "commitment to an early negotiated solution to the Iranian nuclear issue," and welcomes the "dual-track approach" by Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, the six powers trying to clip Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The United States and its European allies had pushed for new, tougher sanctions against Tehran but have run into resistance from Russia and China.
Time is running out. And the world continues to dawdle. Unfortunately, so does Israel.
