PARIS (AP) – France said Friday it is considering measures for a new U.N. Security Council resolution targeting Iranian leaders who have defied the international community over their country’s nuclear program.

The United Nations has already imposed financial sanctions on a list of companies – some linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps – involved in Iran’s nuclear program. The sanctions were imposed last year to punish Iran for refusing to halt uranium enrichment.

“We are considering additional measures, in the framework of a new Security Council resolution, against members and backers of the Iranian regime refusing to comply with demands of the international community,” Hugues Moret, a French Foreign Ministry spokesman, said in an online briefing Friday.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has called for international unity over Iran’s nuclear program, which several Western countries fear masks plans to develop weapons. Iran says its intention is to produce electricity.

Russia and China have thwarted attempts by fellow permanent Security Council members the U.S., Britain and France to impose harsh U.N. sanctions, and have stalled efforts to create new penalties this summer in the face of continued Iranian refusal to freeze its nuclear enrichment activities.
