UN Security Council Resolution 1803
UN Security Council Resolution 1803 was adopted on March 3, 2008, by a vote of 14-0-1, with Indonesia as the only abstention. The Security Council of the United Nations, acting pursuant to Article 41 of Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, required Iran to cease and desist from any and all uranium enrichment. It also required Iran to stop any research and development associated with centrifuges and uranium enrichment. It should be noted, however, that Iran has not stopped its enrichment, and, assuming that it is enriching uranium for exclusively peaceful purposes (e.g. development of nuclear power plants), has every right to continue under the IAEA's standards and practices.
