Turkey, Brazil send letter to UNSC over Iran deal

Turkey and Brazil sent a letter to the United Nations (UN) Security Council regarding the uranium swap agreement signed in Tehran, the spokesperson said on Wednesday.

UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky told reporters that UN ambassadors of Turkey and Brazil had submitted to Security Council members a joint letter on the question of Iran's nuclear programs.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and his Brazilian counterpart Celso Amorim wrote the letter which expressed the ministers' wish that five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany would scrutinize the letter.

Under an agreement signed among Turkey, Iran and Brazil in Tehran on Monday, Turkey will be the venue of uranium swap between Iran and and the West.

In the letter, Turkey and Brazil said they wanted solution of the problem through diplomatic means, and every one should "give a chance" to diplomacy and negotiations and refrain from measures that could prevent a peaceful solution.

The United States called on the UN Security members for a meeting two days ago. The members were submitted a draft resolution on new sanctions on Iran.

With the agreement signed by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Motaki and Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, Iran committed to give the 1200kg of 3.5% enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for 20% enriched uranium it will receive from Western countries to be used as fuel in the nuclear research reactor in Tehran.

Tehran will receive the enriched uranium from the Vienna Group, comprising of the U.S., France, Russia and International Atomic Energy Agency, in Turkey.
