The following statement was issued yesterday by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:
The Secretary-General notes with satisfaction the Security Council’s unanimity in adopting resolution 1747 of 24 March 2007. He calls on the Islamic Republic of Iran to fully implement the resolution’s provisions and to urgently take the necessary steps to restore the international community’s trust that its nuclear programme is peaceful in nature.
