“G8 affirms Iran’s nuclear rights, sets September deadline for progress”

“G8 affirms Iran’s nuclear rights, sets September deadline for progress”
July 8, 2009
     A joint statement by the G8 powers affirms Iran’s right to a civilian nuclear program but adds that Iran must cooperate with the IAEA and the UN Security Council to “restore confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of its nuclear activities”. The G8 will “take stock of the situation” in September (MOFA). In a reference to Russia, which opposes further sanctions against Iran, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that discussions on sanctions were held off “to bring everyone on board”, adding that “the more reserved among us agreed that [the G20 meeting scheduled for late September] was the time for decisions” (Reuters).
