Iran to Cooperate With IAEA

An Iranian official says his country will continue cooperating with the U.N. nuclear agency to prevent the imposition of more Security Council sanctions.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini made the comment Sunday.

On Friday, world powers meeting at the U.N. agreed to put off until November efforts to approve new sanctions.

But, the United States, other permanent Security Council members and Germany said they will seek a third round of sanctions against Iran unless diplomacy can resolve the dispute by November.

The United States and its allies accuse Tehran of trying to build atomic weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program. Iran denies the charge.

The United States, France and Britain favor imposing new sanctions on Iran for its refusal to suspend sensitive nuclear activities. Russia and China say Tehran should be given more time before further sanctions are imposed.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.
