British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw made the announcement today in London.

The meeting is aimed at building consensus on what action to take after the International Atomic Energy Agency reported Iran to the Security Council after it restarted some of its suspended nuclear activities.

The United States believes that Iran is using its nuclear energy program to conceal an effort to make nuclear weapons. Iran denies the charge.
