UK Votes yes to further sanctions on Iran.

Yesterday the UK and 11 other UN Security Council Members voted in favour of imposing further sanctions on Iran.

The sanctions are linked to Iran's Nuclear stance and also includes regular arms and missiles capable of carrying nuclear weapons. This vote was the 6th UN Security Council Resolution on Iran since 2006 and the fourth time instituting sanctions.

Brazil and Turkey voted against the sanctions while Lebanon abstained from the vote.
