No UN agreement on Iran

From The Australian network correspondents in Paris May 03, 2006. Source: AFP:

THE five major UN powers and Germany wrapped up talks in Paris today without a final agreement on how best to tackle Iran over its nuclear programme, but more talks were scheduled, US official Nicholas Burns said.

Mr Burns, number three in the US State Department, said: 'We certainly do not yet have an agreement. This is going to require more talks in New York and our ministers are going to have to meet, no question about it.'
He hinted at frustration at permanent Security Council members Russia and China, which were resisting a tough UN resolution on Iran. 'It's time for countries to take responsibilities, especially those countries that have close relationships with Iran,' he said."
