Resolution 1737 demanded enrichment suspension by February 21, 2007. With no Iranian
compliance, on March 24, 2007, after only three weeks of P5+1 negotiations, Resolution 1747
was adopted unanimously, which:

• added 10 military/WMD-related entities, 3 Revolutionary Guard entities, 8
persons, and 7 Revolutionary Guard commanders. Bank Sepah is among the
entities sanctioned.

• banned arms transfers by Iran, a provision targeted at Iran’s alleged arms supplies
to Lebanese Hezbollah and to Shiite militias in Iraq.

• required all countries to report to the United Nations when sanctioned Iranian
persons travel to their territories.

• called for (but did not require) countries to avoid selling arms or dual use items
to Iran and to avoid any new lending or grants to Iran.

Resolution 1747 demanded Iran suspend enrichment by May 24, 2007. Iran did not comply, but,
suggesting it wanted to avoid further isolation, in August 2007, Iran agreed to sign with the IAEA
an agreement to clear up outstanding questions on Iran’s past nuclear activities by the end of
2007. On September 28, 2007, the P5+1 grouping—along with the EU itself—agreed to a joint
statement pledging to negotiate another sanctions resolution if there is no progress reported by the
IAEA in implementing the August 2007 agreement or in negotiations with EU representative
Javier Solana. The IAEA and Solana indicated that Iran’s responses fell short; Solana described a
November 30, 2007, meeting with Iranian negotiator Sayid Jallili as “disappointing.”
