Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has again urged that Iran be referred to the United Nations Security Council to resolve international concern over the goals of that nation's nuclear program.

Speaking to the press before meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon in Washington January 19, Rice said the Iranians have rejected every opportunity to find a negotiated solution that would give the international community confidence that Iran does not seek a nuclear weapon. She said she would be discussing the issue with her European Union colleagues. (See related article.)

Regarding North Korea, Rice urged the Pyongyang regime to return -- without conditions -- to the Six-Party Talks involving North and South Korea, Japan, China, Russia and the United States. The international community wants a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons, she said.

Rice was scheduled to meet with Foreign Minister Ban for the first ministerial-level dialogue of the Strategic Consultation for Allied Partnership (SCAP), an initiative launched by President Bush and South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun when they met at Gyeongju, South Korea, in November 2005. The two sides plan to meet regularly to consult on bilateral, regional and global issues of mutual interest.
