[JURIST] A European diplomat said Saturday that Russia [JURIST news archive] will not likely support last week's draft resolution that would refer Iran [JURIST news archive] to the UN Security Council [official website] over its nuclear program unless there is an agreement to soften language suggesting that Iran is a threat to world peace and paving the way for a Chapter Seven resolution at the Security Council. France, Britain and Germany circulated the draft resolution on Iran to key members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) [official website] on Wednesday, calling for a referral to the Security Council [JURIST report]. Earlier, Iran threatened to block inspections [JURIST report] of its nuclear facilities if the Security Council confronts Iran over its nuclear program. The resolution, as it stands, would open the possibility of sanctions against Iran and calls for Iran to explain its restarted nuclear program [IAEA backgrounder; JURIST report]. Chapter Seven [text] resolutions are binding under international law, enforceable with sanctions and military action in some circumstances. The European diplomat said that the US and Britain are determined to get a Chapter Seven resolution at the Security Council, and it is not clear whether the Europeans will be willing to soften the language of the draft. The US, Britain, France and Germany broke off talks with Iran earlier this month after Iran resumed its uranium enrichment program. AP has more.
