Gordon Brown led calls for new sanctions against Iran after the UN’s nuclear watchdog issued the country with its first official rebuke in almost four years.
Delegates at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna overwhelmingly backed a resolution expressing dismay at the discovery of a secret nuclear facility buried deep in a mountain bunker near the holy city of Qom.
A senior US official in Vienna said China and Russia had helped frame the resolution, a development that marked the depth of exasperation among Tehran’s allies over its behaviour. The US State Department said talks with Iran had now reached a “dead end”.
Mr Brown warned Iran must quickly demonstrate a change of heart to prevent the United Nations imposing more sanctions on its economy. Iran could now face additional sanctions in time for Security Council endorsement early next year.
