Iran FM threatens to ''reconsider'' cooperation with Int'l Atomic Energy Agency
Iran's Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi denounced on Wednesday the "arrogance" and "extremist posture" of several countries over Tehran's nuclear program and warned that his country might reconsider its cooperation with the United Nation's nuclear watchdog.
"The posture of certain countries (on the board of governors of the IAEA) is irresponsible and arrogant," Kharazi said in a statement published by the official IRNA news agency.
"Unfortunately, some are trying openly and willfully to destroy the process of cooperation between Iran and the agency and seeking to cut the agency out of the process.
"If the extremists take control of the matter and do not recognize our legitimate rights to have peaceful nuclear activities, we will then be obliged to review the situation and the current level of cooperation with the agency," he added. (Albawaba.com)
