World Powers to Wait for Reports on Iran

The world's major powers agreed today to delay until November any new UN resolutions against Iran over its nuclear program.

US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany will wait for two reports by IAEA chief Mohammad ElBaradei and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana before putting to vote the resolution for a third round of UN sanctions on Iran.

Postponing the vote until November was the result of Russian and Chinese insistence to give IAEA more time to do its work in Iran.
