Slovakia supports UN resolution against Iran

SLOVAKIA supports the adoption of a binding UN Security Council resolution that calls on Iran to adhere to international obligations regarding the development of its nuclear program, Slovak Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan said, describing Iran's stance on the issue as "untrustworthy."

"Now it is important that the Security Council issue a consistent signal to Iran to let it know that the country's current untrustworthy stance will not be tolerated. We have no objections to making this warning absolutely strong and binding, including terms by which Iran will have to fulfill its obligations towards the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)," Kukan told journalists.

According to Kukan, Iran's nuclear program provokes serious worries that it wants to possess nuclear weapons, but it is still too early to consider the adoption of economic sanctions, as "Slovakia supports a gradual escalation of influence".

Kukan also expressed his concerns over several confrontational statements by Iran's representatives towards Israel, the US and other countries, the TASR news agency wrote.
