Iran FM to receive UN Security Council states' envoys


Iran's foreign minister will meet with the members of the Security Council on Thursday, diplomats said.

"The Iranian mission is hosting all members of the Security Council this evening," a U.N. diplomat told Reuters on condition of anonymity. "All countries will be represented."

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki will hold the the U.N. ambassadors od Security Council states at Iran's U.N. mission.

It was not immediately clear who would be attending from the other 12 council members.

Tehran insists that its nuclear ambitions are limited to the peaceful generation of electricity.

But Washington and its Western allies suspect that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

Tehran has refused to halt sensitive activities that could enable it to develop weapons.

The United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany have been negotiating for weeks on a draft resolution that would impose a fourth round of sanctions on Iran for refusing to halt its uranium enrichment program.
