UN Security Council broadened Iran nuclear sanctions
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On March 24, 2007, the UN Security Council unanimously voted to impose new sanctions on Iran for continuing to enrich uranium in violation of a previous resolution. Resolution 1747 broadened the sanctions of Resolution 1737, freezing assets of investors in Iran and blocking the export of Iranian arms. Council members said they saw the unanimous vote as a strong censure sending a clear message that Iran should "suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development, to be verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency." The Council nonetheless emphasized that the resolution is not intended to punish Iran or its people but rather to prompt renewed negotiations.
