The U.N. Security Council just passed a fourth round of sanctions against Iran in an attempt to halt its efforts to produce nuclear weapons. When asked about the sanctions yesterday, the day before the vote, Clinton said in Ecuador:
…I think it is fair that these are the most significant sanctions that Iran has ever faced. And the amount of unity that has been engendered by the international community is very significant."
She said yesterday that she would wait until after the vote to comment on how it went and how much support or not the resolution received. The 15-member Security Council ended up passing the resolution 12-2, with Brazil and Turkey voting no and Lebanon abstaining. So, maybe we’ll hear further remarks from Clinton soon.
And, maybe we’ll see Iran pull its "stunt" soon.
