UN Security Council Unanimously Approves Resolution 1747

The UN Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 1747, a new package of sanctions which includes a ban on arms exports and financial restrictions against an expanded list of Iranian officials and corporations.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki attended the Security Council meeting, but the Council rejected his arguments and unanimously voted against the Islamic Republic.

This is becoming a familiar trend. When it comes to any showdown with the Islamic Republic, the entire world unites against it; and in the process Iran becomes increasingly more isolated.

It is apparent that the actual government in Iran can not protect the rights of the Iranian nation, no matter how basic those rights might be. The entire world so mistrusts this government that it does not even allow it to develop an energy program of its own. If Iran wants to realize its full potentials, it would need to have a new government.
