Statement on the United Nations Security Council Resolution on Iran

Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
December 23, 2006

Today, the Security Council responded unanimously to the threat presented by Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability. Resolution 1737, which is the product of many months of hard work by the United States and other Members of the Council, places Iran among the small number of countries facing international condemnation through Chapter VII Security Council sanctions. We call on all countries to take immediate action to implement their obligations under this resolution. The Iranian government, through its own actions, has further isolated itself and the Iranian people from the international community.

This resolution is a strong signal to the government of Iran that it should accept its international obligations, suspend its sensitive nuclear activities, and accept the negotiations path that the U.S. and its Security Council partners offered six months ago.
