The article focuses on the implications for the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama of the summit meetings of the India-Brazil-South Africa (IBSA) forum and Brazil-Russia-India-China (BRIC) group concerning a sanctions resolution for Iran held in Brazil in April 2010. It notes that the meetings tend to indicate that any sanction on Iran that will be passed in the United Nations Security Council is likely to fall short of the expectations of Obama. It discusses two approaches that the U.S. can take to have the sanctions meet its expectations.
