UNITED NATIONS, June 24 (Reuters) - Acting U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Jonathan Cohen told the U.N. Security Council on Monday that Washington's policy on Iran "remains an economic and diplomatic effort to bring Iran back to the negotiating table."

Cohen spoke to reporters after the closed-door council session requested by the United States. He also said he told the 15-member council that U.S. evidence showed Iran was to blame for attacks on commercial tankers in the Gulf region in May and June and called on the world to tell Iran it is "unacceptable."
