Major powers seen meeting on Iran this week

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Major powers are expected to meet in New York on Saturday to discuss possible new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, diplomats said on Monday.

The talks among the U.N. Security Council’s five permanent members and Germany may expose differences within the group, as the United States pushes for more sanctions while China has made clear that it does not think the time was ripe.

The United States accuses Iran of using its civil nuclear program as a cover to pursue an atomic bomb and has led the push for more punitive measures within the Security Council, which has already passed three rounds of sanctions on Tehran.

Iran, which has seen its most serious domestic unrest since the 1979 Islamic revolution in street protests over a disputed June election, says its nuclear program is to produce power so that it can export more of its valuable oil and gas.
