Iran reported to UN Security Council


Iran is to be reported to the UN Security Council over concerns about its atomic programme. The move comes at the end of a meeting in Vienna of the board of the UN’s nuclear watchdog, and could set the stage for sanctions being imposed in the future. Britain’s ambassador to the agency, Peter Jenkins, said: “It’s a message of concern at developments in Iran since early January, and of continuing lack of confidence in Iran’s nuclear intentions.”

Iran says it is now limiting cooperation with the UN and will restart uranium enrichment. “This resolution is politically motivated since it is not based on any legal or technical grounds,” said Iran’s envoy to the agency, Javad Vaedi. Tehran says it may now also curb future UN inspections. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been insisting his country only wants to develop nuclear power, not weapons.
