"The E3+3 had an in-depth discussion of the draft resolution, on the basis of the E3 proposal.

We made substantive progress on the scope of the sanctions, targeting proliferation-sensitive activities.

There remain several outstanding issues, on which we will reflect over the coming days.

We all agree on the necessity of adopting an effective resolution.

We are now close to a conclusion of this process.

The next step will be in New York."
