Togo inherits from Syria and Iran

Serious business is about to start for Togo at the UNSC. The country just assumed the presidency of to committees, the oneconcerningIraq and Kuwait (resolution 1518/2003) and the one on Lebanon (resolution 1636/2005). In addition, Togo will assume the vice-presidency of 3 other committees: Somalia and Eritrea, the Iranian nuclear program and the North Korean nuclear issue.

Highly sensitive issues, to be sure.

Concerning Lebanon, resolution 1636 aims at obligating the government of Syria to cooperate with with the independent international commission of inquiry into the assassination of the former PM of Lebanon, Rafic Hariri, in february 2005.

On the Iranian issue, resolution 1737 of the UNSC imposed sanctions against the regime of Tehran for its pursuit of its uranium enrichment program. The resolution forbids the delivery of materials and technologies linked to the nuclear industry and freezes the assets of companies and individuals ties to the enrichment program.

On Friday, France, a permanent member of the UNSC, declared to be favorable "in principles" to a new round of sanctions against Iran.
