Russia signs sanctions law on Iran
MOSCOW, May 8 (AFP) May 08, 2008
Russia has signed into law its adherence to UN sanctions against Iran aimed at forcing the country to halt nuclear fuel work, the Kremlin said Thursday.
The Kremlin published the decree on its website declaring adherence to the March 3 UN Security Council Resolution 1803, which tightened measures against Iran as part of efforts to persuade Tehran to suspend controversial uranium enrichment.
The decree was signed on Monday this week by Vladimir Putin who stepped down as president on Wednesday and was replaced by Dmitry Medvedev.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
