London, Feb. 27 – Canada imposed sanctions on Iran on Tuesday in line with a United Nations Security Council resolution in December which ordered a blockade of the country’s suspected nuclear weapons program.

“The Government of Canada has satisfied its obligations and is fully implementing Resolution 1737, which is intended to bring about the verifiable suspension of Iran’s uranium enrichment program”, Canadian Foreign Minister Peter MacKay said in a statement.

The Security Council voted unanimously in December in favour of Resolution 1737, imposing mild sanctions against Tehran for its nuclear defiance. It gave Tehran two months to suspend uranium enrichment and return to the negotiating table.

The International Atomic Energy Agency announced last week that Tehran had failed to meet the deadline.

“Canada believes that if Iran wishes to regain the confidence of the international community, as represented by the Security Council, it must earnestly submit to the requirements of Resolution 1737”, MacKay said.

On February 22, the Governor-in-Council made new regulations under the United Nations Act: the Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolution on Iran. Together with existing relevant provisions of the Canada Shipping Act, the Export and Import Permits Act and the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, these regulations will enable Canada to fully implement in Canadian law the sanctions mandated by Resolution 1737 of the Security Council, the statement said.

The regulations impose an embargo on certain goods and services that could contribute to Iran’s activities linked to enrichment, reprocessing, heavy water or the development of nuclear weapons delivery systems. They also address an assets freeze and a travel notification requirement.
