Clinton: We’re Ready to Move Forward With Iran Sanctions at the United Nations
Laura Rozen reports that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t think the new Iran-Turkey uranium enrichment deal will derail the U.S.’s efforts at securing consensus in the United Nations Security Council for Iran sanctions:
“We have reached agreement on a strong draft with the cooperation of both Russia and China,” Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today.
“We plan to circulate that draft resolution to the entire Security Council today,” Clinton said. “I think this announcement is as convincing an answer to the efforts undertaken in Tehran over the last few days as any we could provide.
Could be bluster, or it could be that Clinton has a whip count.
