Azerbaijan, Baku, 22 February /corr. Trend D.Khatinoglu / The UN Security Council may adopt new sanctions with regard to Iran, without expecting the next report on Iran's nuclear plans -which is being devised by the IAEA Director General- Mohamed al-Baredi. "Not considering the essence of the report, the Security Council will adopt the third resolution with regard to Iran," the Iranian expert on nuclear issues, Ahmed Shirzad, reported to Trend .

On 21 Feb, the UN Security Council approved the initial variant of the third Resolution against Iran. Al-Baredi will submit his next report on Iran's nuclear plans to the UNO on 22 February.

"The world public will not ignore Iran's nuclear plans, regular tests of the ballistic missiles and threats with regard to Israel," the former member of the Iranian Parliament, Ahmed Shirzad, reported to Trend by telephone from Iran on 22 February. However, he considers that the next resolution will not be a sharper one.

According to Shirzad, Iran's nuclear plan are unnecessary and the international community will not allow it.

Another Iranian expert Ahmed Zeydabadi says that Tehran hopes that Al-Baredi's next report on Iran's nuclear plans will contain some positive moments, and thus, Iran will be able to justify itself in the issue of uranium enrichment, and sensitivity of the international community towards Iran will decrease. "But it is not excluded that Al-Baredi's next report will be sharp. The US intelligence has presented him the new facts and proofs regarding the secret nuclear activity of Iran. In addition, Iran has not fully made clear the suspicions on the nuclear plans. All these factors act against Iran," he reported to Trend by telephone on 22 February.

Up till now, the UN Security Council has adopted two resolutions with regards to Iran's uranium enrichment plans. However, considering acquisition of the military nuclear technologies as its legal rights, Iran does not agree with the UN demands.
