Ban ‘deeply concerned’ by Iran’s refusal to suspend uranium enrichment

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says that he is “deeply concerned” that Iran has not met the Security Council deadline to suspend uranium enrichment.

“I urge again that the Iranian Government fully comply with the Security Council as soon as possible” to engage in continued negotiation “with the international community so that we will be able to address and peacefully resolve this issue,” he told reporters in Vienna, Austria, where he is on an official visit.
