Security Council Imposes Additional Sanctions on Iran, Voting 12 in Favour to 2 Against, with 1 Abstention - full text of the resolution

Iranian Parliament and Ahmadinejad administration contested the legality of the fourth resolution passed at the United Nation's Security Council against Iran yesterday and contended that this act is a "political ploy" to divert attention from the "crimes" of Israel.

Ahamdinejad's senior aide Esfandiar Rahim Mashai said: "The West has in effect rejected Tehran agreement by approving the resolution," and added that Iran does not recognize the validity of this resolution.

ISNA reports that speaker of Iran's Parliament, Ali Larijani expressed disappointment in the "games" being played in the US and contended that the "Zionist lobby" has led the US President astray.

Ramin Mehmanparast, spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry condemned the resolution and maintained that it merely complicates matters even more.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of Iran's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission claimed while being the result of US pressures, the resolution is "a political , illegal and unacceptable" act. He added that in view of the fact that Tehran Agreement "had already resolved all problems in the nuclear arena and gained global approval", this resolution is "illegal and unacceptable."

Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran's representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency said that the current impasse in Iran's nuclear negotiations can only be broken if the UN Security Council stops interfering in IAEA negotiations.

The UN Security Council passed its fourth resolution to impose further sanctions against Iran yesterday. The resolution passed with 12 in favour, two against and one abstaining.

The new resolution adds the names of a number of companies connected with the Revolutionary Guards Corps of Iran to their list of companies facing international sanctions and puts restrictions on foreign travel for a number of Iranian top officials.
