Security Council Resolution 1835: Response to IAEA report


This resolution is a continuation of  previous sanctions resolutions (1696, 1737, 1747,1803  ) regarding the Iranian nuclear program. Inasmuch as Iran failed to comply with IAEA requests for information and failed to stop its enrichment program. each successive resolution usually called for action after a pending IAEA report would be issued, In this case, the IAEA issued a report, but the Obama administration and its European partners had decided on diplomatic action instead. Therefore, the resolution takes and recommends no action.  

This resolution is included for completeness, as it is referred to in subsequent resolutions.
