[JURIST] British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw [BBC profile; official website] said Saturday that Iran [JURIST news archive] will likely have to face the UN Security Council [official website] unless it resumes compliance with nuclear non-proliferation requirements. Straw would not confirm whether or not he expects the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) [official website] to decide on a Security Council referral at its scheduled February 2 meeting. France, Britain and Germany have already circulated a draft resolution on Iran [JURIST report] to key IAEA members that would open up the possibility of sanctions, but Russia has expressed reservations [JURIST report] about referring Iran to the Council. When the IAEA is unable to resolve issues of non-compliance, the organization turns the matter over to the Security Council. Reuters has more.
