SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe city council is set vote a resolution calling on the U.S. not to attack Iran.
Councilors are set Wednesday to consider a resolution that denounces any pre-emptive attack against Iran and calls on the U.S. to use "diplomacy and not threats in negotiations with Iran."
According to the resolution, Iran is not a nuclear threat and any U.S. attack on Iran would spark further unrest in the Middle East.
The nonbinding measure was drafted by a coalition of area anti-war, religious and advocacy groups. The activists want Santa Fe to join a number of other cities and towns that have passed or are considering similar measures.
