The 15-member UN Security Council has unanimously approved a non-binding statement giving Iran 30 days to comply with demands that it abandon uranium enrichment activities.

The full council backed the text, which had first been worked out among the body's five veto-wielding permanent members on Wednesday.

The statement comes on the eve of a meeting on the issue in Berlin on Thursday that will bring together foreign ministers of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.
