Brazil is dropping role in Iran nuclear dispute

Brazil`s foreign minister says his country`s active support of Iran in its dispute with the West over its nuclear programme is being scaled back after the UN Security Council decision to move for a fourth set of sanctions.



Vienna: Brazil`s foreign minister says
his country`s active support of Iran in its dispute with the
West over its nuclear programme is being scaled back after the
UN Security Council decision to move for a fourth set of
sanctions.

"We will help whenever we can, but of course there is
a limit to where we can go," Celso Amorim told reporters on
the sidelines of an official visit to Austria.

Brazil and Turkey last month brokered an Iranian
nuclear fuel-swap deal in hopes that they would at least delay
new UN sanctions, but the new penalties were imposed
nonetheless.

Iran said today it has banned two UN nuclear
inspectors from entering the country because they disclosed to
the media the contents of a "false" report on the country`s
disputed nuclear programme before the UN nuclear watchdog
reviewed it.
