US, Russia reach deal on new UN Iran resolution

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Britain's U.N. ambassador says Russia and the United States have reached a deal to seek a new U.N. resolution on Iran.

Ambassador John Sawers spoke briefly Friday before heading into a high-level meeting at U.N. headquarters of nations concerned with events in Pakistan.

Western diplomats said the Russians and Americans have apparently agreed to seek a new Security Council resolution.

It would reaffirm three rounds of earlier U.N. sanctions to make clear that the process has not been dropped and that the council wants Iran to comply.

The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because details have not been made public.
