NEW YORK (AP) - The U.N. Security Council is poised to adopt
another round of sanctions aimed at keeping Iran from developing
U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice says the resolution before the
Security Council bans Iran from the commercial uranium business.
It would also prohibit the Iranian purchase of attack
helicopters and missiles and bar the production of missiles that
could carry nuclear weapons.
The measure, which would be the fourth round of sanctions aimed
at corralling Iran's nuclear ambitions, also includes financial
penalties for agents of Iran's revolutionary Guard.
It stops short of severe economic sanctions or an oil embargo.
Rice says the resolution will increase the pressure on Tehran.
