Iran’s president has warned he may re-consider his country’s membership to the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he may revise his approach to the accord if Iran were forced to abandon its nuclear activities. The leader made the comments in a speech marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

The West has successfully pushed for Tehran to be reported to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions amid suspicion Iran is trying to develop a nuclear bomb.
