Iran Threatens to Restart Nuclear Work

Iran threatened on Wednesday to resume its enrichment of uranium – a prerequisite for making nuclear weapons – if the International Atomic Energy Agency passed an expected resolution rebuking it for not cooperating. Iran’s president, Mohammad Khatami, said his country no longer had a “moral commitment” to suspend uranium enrichment, though he added that it had not made a decision to restart such work.”If the draft resolution proposed by the European countries is approved by the I.A.E.A., Iran will reject it,” he said in Tehran. “If Europe has no commitment toward Iran, then Iran will not have a commitment toward Europe.” Mr. Khatami’s statement deepened the rift between Iran and the atomic energy agency, a United Nations watchdog group, as its 35-member governing board was close to passing a toughly worded resolution deploring Tehran’s lack of cooperation with its investigation of the country’s nuclear program.Full Story
