Western states have defeated an Iranian proposal to amend a draft resolution on a policy area central to the prevention of nuclear proliferation. They rejected Iran’s initiative at the annual assembly of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The draft text was adopted in a vote after days of closed-door negotiations between Iran and the IAEA failed to achieve consensus. Diplomats said Iran and Egypt had wanted to include language in the resolution suggesting the UN nuclear watchdog should have a role also in nuclear disarmament.

This was opposed by a large majority including the United States, Britain, France and Russia. The four officially-recognised nuclear weapons states say the IAEA is not the right forum for this.
